Lincoln County to increase property taxes for roads and bridges



Lincoln County Commissioners have seen an increased need for work on the county’s roads and bridges. To address that need, they recently approved a property tax increase of $0.30 per $1,000 of taxable valuation to properly maintain, repair, construct and reconstruct its roads and bridges.

If this decision is not overturned by voters, the action will begin starting with the 2021 taxes, payable in 2022, and continue for a period of three years.

In order to refer this action to a vote, a petition signed by at least five percent of registered voters in the district must be submitted to the Commissioners within 20 days of the first publication of the notice. If a petition is properly submitted, this tax increase would go to a vote.

The legal notice from Lincoln County is printed on page 11 of this week’s Lennox Independent.
