Anyone who is still delinquent on their property taxes in Todd County is encouraged to contact the county attorney as soon as they can to set up payments.
Todd County Attorney Mac Johns says delinquent payers will have their accounts sold to third party collectors in August if a payment plan isn’t set up before then.
Johns says he is more than willing to work with delinquent payers, but the collectors may not be so nice.
The county attorney says he has already met with several payers and has set up plans to get them right without going through those third party collectors.

The arrest card for 46-year old James Acree of Cadiz says Hopkinsville Police clocked him going 70 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone on Cadiz Road. When Officer Ray Beard attempted to pull him over, Acree allegedly kept going until he abandoned his vehicle on foot in the parking lot at the Woodshed.

Acree was charged with speeding and fleeing from police and was lodged in the Christian County Jail.
