Commissioners Comment August 2009, #1

The Washington County Gaming Commission has distributed over two million dollars to charitable organizations and Volunteer Fire and Rescue companies this year. Gaming Office Director Jim Hovis talks about this year’s fund, the application process, and how his office ensures accountability. The Gaming Tax is applied to “tip jars” and other amusements in the County and helps reduce taxpayer contributions to these agencies and organizations.

ALSO: Vicki Lumm is officially sworn in as County Clerk. The last time this occurred was 1981.

Run time: 14:53
