HARTINGTON — The Hartington City Council got some good news last week in the form of a rebate check from the EMC Nebraska Municipality Safety Group Dividend Program. Local representative Peg Anderson of Anderson and Anderson Insurance presented the Council with a check for $27,042.
The Hartington Rural Fire Department also received a dividend check of $1,664 from EMC.
EMC Insurance companies have a dividend program for all the municipalities and fire districts under 15,000 in population in Nebraska with whom they work. In 2020, the company was able to pay an 18 percent dividend back to all qualifying policy holders. The company has paid out a dividend in 19 out of the past 26 years.
This year’s dividend check was the second largest in the history of the program.
