Dossett: Vote yes on SJC Road Department lid lift request

In 1873, San Juan County came into being. The first county taxing district was the road department and for good reason. Our young county needed good roads to transport goods, services and people. After 149 years, our county has grown appreciably and our county roads, either new or old, need continued maintenance and additional improvements.

The County Council is asking the voting public to approve a county road department ‘lid lift’ of an additional annual $.44 for a total of $1.00 per $1,000 of assessed value.

Let’s support our Council and road department by approving this much needed levy increase.
