On Aug. 4, Madison County Sheriff John Swaney updated the Madison County commissioners on the investigation of damage to several properties in the area of Big Plain Circleville, Glade Run Road, Jones Marsh Road and Hume Lever Road. On July 26, someone damaged mailboxes, farm fields and road signs.
An anonymous resident put up a $5,000 reward for leads leading to the arrest of the culprit or culprits. The Sheriff’s Office has received several leads, Swaney said. No one offering information was interested in the reward money; they just wanted to help, he added.
So far, the leads have not turned up any suspects. Anyone with information can call the Sheriff’s Office at (740) 852-1332.
Swaney also reported that after looking at the financials for his dog warden division, he does not need to request an increase in dog license fees for 2021.
“We’re holding our own,” he said about finances.
That means dog license fees for next year will remain the same as they were this year: $16 for a one-year tag; $40 for a three-year tag; and $150 for a lifetime tag.
