Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon has announced there will be a public hearing on Monday August 10th at exactly 8:50am, in the upstairs courtroom just before the next Fiscal Court meeting. This hearing is in regards to two proposed new taxes recently discussed by county government.
One is an Extension Agent Tax, the other a Health Department Tax. Both offices are funded by Edmonson County Fiscal Court. Judge Cannon encourages everyone to attend. "We need the public's opinion on these proposed taxes," he said. Cannon has recently discussed how the two taxes could help the county fight a $200,000 budget deficit over the next two years.
