The unofficial results are in: The local option sales tax (LOST), or penny tax, has been approved in the City of Oskaloosa (885-562), but has not been approved in unincorporated Mahaska County (308-1498).
The future of Osky's Edmundson Pool is still not decided. The issue came into question during an Eggs and Issues forum in February when a resident asked, will the pool close if the proposed recreation and early childhood center is approved?
Local media outlets will soon host a Mahaska County supervisor and sheriff forum. CRI has partnered with KBOE and the Oskaloosa Herald to host a forum aimed at helping county residents learn more about the eight possible candidates.
