Happenings around Lincoln County
Last updated 2/25/2019 at 11:18pm
The year 2018 was a good one for Lincoln County! We saw a spike in various sources of revenue that resulted in a higher than expected cash balance at the end of the year. Most of the increases were from sales tax, investment interest and jail revenue. While we saw increases from several sources, revenue from divorce filings, previously the third largest source of revenue for the county, continued its steady decline. We have gone from processing 4,542 divorces in 2008 to just over 2,100 in 2018. This has been a huge loss of revenue to the county over the last 10 years.
The extra cash to end...
