COUNTY RECIEVES TWO STATE PAYMENTS IN JULY
According to the Bond County Board and County Treasurer Katie Weiss, Bond County received two state income tax payments in July. In total the county received just over $95,000. These were the Feb. and March state income tax payments to the county.
The Bond County Veterans Memorial Committee reported to the county board it will be adding concrete improvements around the memorial bricks on the courthouse lawn. This will make it easier for specific veteran’s bricks to be found by visitors and family members. The board announced an opening on the Smithboro Fire Protection Board that will likely be filled at the next meeting later in August. You may see the entire Bond County Board meeting Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. on Greenville Cable Channel 18.
