Letter to the Editor: Support Local Option Sales Tax Aguust 5

To the Editor:
On August 5, polls in Allamakee County will be open from noon until 8 p.m. for the Local Option Sales and Services Tax continuation vote. The Local Option Sales and Services Tax (LOSST) has been a vital and essential contributor to the well-being of our local communities and rural areas since 1997. This 1% sales tax is collected on sales made in Allamakee County, and all money collected stays here in Allamakee County. It is distributed to the Secondary Roads Department, Rural Services (such as garbage collection sites), and Rural Townships. Rural Townships have several commitments that they use these funds for, including fire/ambulance protection, cemetery maintenance, and library support. These services, which we all enjoy and benefit from, rely on the LOSST funds.
Please vote YES on August 5. As a lifelong resident of Allamakee County, I ask that we all work together to keep this great corner of our state safe, beautiful, and prosperous for the generations that follow. Please do your part, shop locally, and support the LOSST Vote on August 5. If you have any questions, please call me at 563-568-4754.

Tony Baxter, Township Trustees & Clerks
