Elected Libertarians Help Local Agency Abolish Itself

This morning Libertarians celebrated the shuttering of the Lee County Soil & Water Conservation Board thanks to the efforts of elected libertarians who controlled the local government agency. The agency made headlines a few years ago when it abolished a main component of the agency, the mobile irrigation labs, then returned $100,000 of taxpayer money to property owners.
