Today-Special Election for Rural Residents
Only people in the unincorporated areas of the county are eligible to vote. That means no one in the city limits of any town are eligible to vote. This election is to re-purpose the 1% sales tax that now goes to the law center. The supervisors would like to change it to 45% property tax relief, 35% court house repairs, and 20% for any lawful purpose.
A pair of eye glasses in a black case has been found near the Museum. Ask about it inside.
