Commissioner Jerry Johnson stopped by the Hoffman Tribune office on Friday to renew his subscription for another year, and in the process, had an extended conversation with the editor. Johnson represents the entire western half of Douglas County - it is essentially an all-rural district, including the Kensington and Evansville area.
This came on the heels of word that the Douglas County property tax levy would increase 6.3% for next year's budget. Johnson talked at length about numerous pressures on the county budget, and also gave ideas where the county is saving the taxpayers money.
More on this will follow later.
