Wheelage is relief to landowners

Published 10:28am Thursday, August 15, 2013

I would like to thank the Freeborn County commissioners who voted in favor of the wheelage tax. This money can only be spent to improve the roads and bridges in Freeborn County and nothing else. This spreads the cost of roads among the people who use them, not just property owners. This is money well spent to improve our county highway system.
