State Supreme Court Opposes Transparent Government
Last updated 3/9/2023 at 10:02am
Lincoln County has always been a huge proponent of transparency. We believe, as elected officials, that we should not get to decide what the public should or should not know about how their tax money is spent. In fact, in 2016 the Board of County Commissioners passed a Transparency Resolution stating that all future union contract negotiations will be conducted in a manner that is open to the public. Not for public involvement or input but so citizens and employees alike can see how their representatives negotiate what is the single biggest expense for taxpayers-- salaries and benefits.
