Buchanan County Courthouse

Jeremy Livingston was sentenced to eight years in prison Friday after previously entering a guilty plea earlier this year to the charge of involuntary manslaughter.

The county is asking voters whether to rescind a quarter-cent sales tax five months early, because the necessary money has been raised for levee repairs that are ongoing. A “yes” vote would cease a quarter cent sales tax on voters inside the county now. A “no” vote would continue the tax until 2020 ends.
