The Lonoke County Justices of the Peace will meet March 20 to decide to put the Lonoke County Museum on the County Budget or not. The County Treasurer says this is legal but, as anything else, must be voted on.
Here is a list of the J.Ps and their phone numbers. Please call them and ask them to vote for the approval of the money request for support of the Lonoke County Museum. This money only covers 1/5th of what is spent annually.
We feel that is about the amount the Museum does on behalf of the County with the care and upkeep of the documents of which we have been entrusted. We have held these books since 2007. We did for a short time receive the “volunteer tax money,” perhaps as much as six months.
Please call your J.P. before the [budget] meeting which will be held about 5 p.m. on the 20th or come and show your support at 6 p.m. at the Court House Annex Building, across from the Courthouse.
Not only are we “Saving Lonoke County History One Document At A Time” but we have a pretty good Museum too!
