Citizens, be informed and stay informed!  Only by being informed, can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County.  That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.

    Wouldn’t it be smarter to buy the ADA van and share it with the 4H club? This would save 45000.

    What is the Barr Bridge repair? Hopefully it’s the transition from road to bridge that I’ve been asking for for years.
