Missouri’s smallest county faces the shutdown of its courthouse January 1st because voters have refused to extend, and expand, a property tax for county government operations. Citizens of Worth County, along our northern border, have rejected a 70-cent property tax levy. County leaders say they might have to lay off employees and close the courthouse because of the defeat. It’s happened twice before in Worth County, the most recent time about 20 years ago.
