Brown County to Tackle Issues

Mt. Sterling, IL – A survey of Brown County residents has identified eight issues they'd like to work on. The University of Illinois polling identified issues including schools, economic development, social services and community services. Carrie Edgar of the U of I Extension Service says residents formed task groups to come up with ways to tackle the problems. She says funding might be available from the Tracy Family Foundation, which sponsored the survey. The United Way and other groups could also help with funding for some projects.
