Lee County is projecting a slight decrease in its upcoming property tax rate.
The Board of Supervisors has spent the last few weeks putting together the county’s spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
The latest draft shows a $0.13 decrease in the rural property tax rate, from $11.03 to $10.90.
There would be an even larger cut to the urban tax rate from $9.00 to $8.62.
This would mark the second Lee County budget in a row to feature a reduction in both property tax rates.
The Iowa GOP has released the certified results from the January 3rd Caucus.
They show the race between former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was too close to call.
Romney was leading by nearly 10 votes on caucus night, but Santorum is now ahead by about 35 votes.
There will be no official winner, though, because the final vote totals were not available for eight precincts in Iowa, including four in Lee County.
