Vote “YES” for the Public Safety Tax to keep vital Logan County services!

     Public Safety Tax   

If Logan County voters reject a 0.25% Public Safety tax increase, serious consequences will result:
1. Sheriff’s Dept.: Public safety will be at risk because 7 deputies & 3 other employees will be cut
2. Highway Dept.: Snowplowing, road & ditch work will be reduced because 2-3 employees will be cut
3. County & Circuit Clerk: Services will be reduced as 4 employees will be cut
4. Animal Control: Recent improvements in jeopardy. Hours of operation & employee hours will be cut
5. Logan County Health Dept.: Services for many Logan County residents will be severely reduced as 6 employees will be cut; Rural Health Mobile Unit services will be eliminated; clinic hours reduced


The Lincoln & Logan County Development Partnership supports the Public Safety tax increase.  Quality of life for many Logan County residents will suffer if this is not approved.
