Putnam County Commission Has Busy Night

It was a busy night for Putnam County commissioners Monday night. They approved a budget for the county with no need for an increase in the property tax rate. It will remain at 2.75. They also OK'd a motion that would have voters in Putnam County decide by referendum whether or not they want to implement a financial management act for the county. But commissioners rejected a proposal to rent the fairgrounds to the so-called Slammin and Jammin Car Show. The vote on that issue was 19 to 5. A motion had been made to allow the show on a one-year trial basis, but the majority of the commissioners apparently thought that was a bad idea.
