The local option sales tax took effect in 2004. The sales tax fund
will be used for community improvement. Money spent in local
businesses provides property tax dollars that support our school
and city. It also creates new jobs for people in our community and
gives them the ability to reinvest their paychecks locally.

Our annual spring cleanup in April keeps the trail beautiful. Please consider renewing your membership and encourage others to join. Thank You!
