HEA 1266

On March 26, 2014, Governor Pence signed into law House Enrolled Act 1266 (“HEA 1266”). HEA 1266 includes provisions that transition the process of advertising political subdivision budgets and levies from a newspaper system to an online system through the Department of Local Government Finance’s Gateway website. However, for 2015 only, political subdivisions will also have to publish their budgets and levies in the newspaper in the manner required in the past budget years. For taxes due and payable in 2016, notices will not be printed in the newspaper and will be available at or by calling (888) 739-9826.

Recycling Tour

We still have the doubters!!!! They think the recycling is mixed with the garbage and goes straight to a landfill, and that the recycling materials are NOT recycled.
