Jasper County Board of Supervisors postpones a transfer of property and names three offical newspapers
At Tuesday's weekly meeting of the Jasper County Board of Supervisors, the designation of official newspapers was among the top issues discussed. Ultimately, the board members selected three papers to publish legal notices for 2013.
Four publications had requested official newspaper status: Newton Daily News, Jasper County Tribune of Colfax, Hometown Press of Sully and Prairie City News. According to state law (see sidebar) only three publications could receive official newspaper status.
Using "bona fide yearly subscriber lists" for subscribers to each newspaper within Jasper County, Newton Daily News, Hometown Press and Jasper County Tribune were selected to receive legal notices for publication in 2013. The "bona fide" numbers for the four papers were as follows: Newton Daily News, 2,752; Hometown Press, 677; Jasper County Tribune, 584; and Prairie City News, 533.
