Logan County Prosecutor Bill Goslee updated Kiwanis members on his office's activities at their regular meeting Thursday.
Mr. Goslee, pictured left, first pointed out that his office is getting more done with less, citing the fact that Union County, which has a population and case loads similar to Logan County, has nearly twice as many employees in the Prosecutors Office as does Logan County.
He went on to say that prosecuting those accused of crimes is only part of his job. It is also the prosecutor's duty to represent several county offices, including the treasurer, auditor, engineer, and many others.
Mr. Goslee also explained that his office has sent out over 150 of what he called 'nasty grams' to those who owe delinquent taxes. The 'nasty grams' appear to be working, he said, as over $600,000 in back taxes were collected in 2012.
The prosecutor's office is also charged to support the Logan County Joint Drug Task Force and is currently developing a S.A.R.T (Sexual Abuse Response Team) which will work with mostly children who have been assaulted.
In other business, Bob Erwin received the Legion of Honor Award for 45 years of service with the Kiwanis while Bill Montgomery received his 40-year Legion of Honor award.
Herbalist Chris Freeman is scheduled to be the speaker at next Thursday's regular meeting.
