I am concerned about the future of OSU Extension services in Carroll County. Last spring Carroll County voters chose not to support a levy to restore Extension to a full service office. Since then the office has closed and the employees had to find other jobs. The future of OSU Extension looked grim.
On Nov. 2 you will have the opportunity to vote on a much smaller levy to restore the presence of OSU Extension to Carroll County. With this very basic service center, children will again have the ability to learn and grow through 4-H, farmers will have access to the information they need to become more profitable; consumer science assistance will be available, as will economic development assistance. This is a wealth of knowledge for a very small price.
Although we will have a new small staff, this will again open the door to the services Carroll County has always enjoyed through OSU Extension. Please support this issue on November 2nd and make Carroll County’s future brighter!
