The Winnebago County Supervisors are hearing some opposition to their funding plans for a one-point-four million-dollar addition to the courthouse. The Winnebago County Farm Bureau doesn’t want the county to spend rural local option sales tax receipts to pay for the loans on the courthouse expansion. The group’s president, Mark Ederson, says that money should be used to improve rural roads.The Winnebago County Farm Bureau has started circulating petitions to change how the local option sales tax money is used to prevent it from being used for the courthouse. The county can currently use 75-percent of the money any way it wants. The courthouse addition is needed to make the building handicapped accessible.
