To the Citizens of Boone County,
I was elected to provide you with the insight of public safety related issues and challenges that we are facing in Boone County today. My duty as your Sheriff is to be your Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the county. You can see in the attached presentations that as a constitutional office holder my job responsibilities are much greater than that of a police chief or town marshal. Please keep this in mind as my experience in law enforcement, my management experience, and my Master’s degree in Business allow me to be your voice when it comes to these types of challenges that the Boone County Sheriff’s Office is facing. These credentials are extremely important when addressing issues that relate to providing the sheriff’s office services to the citizens of Boone County.
As your elected Sheriff I take any type of tax implementation very seriously. I do not want to be that Sheriff that implements a tax! However, when you constantly are being told that the county revenues do not support hiring additional staff; how else can I support the citizens of this county, the inmates in my facility, the employees that work in our buildings, and the motoring traffic that come through our county each and every day? How do we maintain the safety and security of our county from that criminal element? Please review the documentation so that you too can feel the frustration that I feel. Also, please attend one of the meeting dates below for a presentation on our Strategic Business Plan and the LIT implementation. I will make myself available at any time for any questions that anyone has about this plan.
– Sheriff Mike Nielsen
I would like to point out that this Local Income Tax (LIT) is NOT just for the Office of Boone County Sheriff. If this LIT were implemented it will benefit ALL public safety agencies throughout Boone County.
