Taxpayers of Goodhue County, do not hold your money too tight, because three commissioners want to take more than what is needed from you. This year's preliminary budget is a proposed increase of 9 percent or an additional $3 million taken out of the private sector in the county.

This tax will take another $1.7 million (approximated) from taxpayers making purchases in the county to go specifically to road and bridge projects.
Thank you for the question. Council members voted unanimously on Sep. 10, 2018, to prohibit paint or graffiti on the western rock face of He Mni Can-Barn Bluff. The city already has a graffiti policy that covers all public and private property, and the council simply recommitted to enforcing the law, including at that particular spot. According to the current policy, graffiti is defined as "any writing, printing, mark, sign, symbol, figure, design, inscription, or other drawing scratched, scrawled, printed, drawn, or otherwise placed on any natural edifice, surface of a building, wall, sidewalk, sign, phone pole or train pole or any permanent structure on public or private property which has the effect of defacing the property."

Minnesotans can be proud that we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country, but half of us still don't vote in midterm elections like the one coming up on Nov 6, 2018. No matter what your politics are, your vote matters. So many elections in recent years have been decided by only a handful of votes. Early voting has already started.
