Offices Move by Order of the State
By: Ryan Tate
According to the Missouri Department of Revenue, the offices will move from Bloomfield to Dexter July 1st. Representatives from the office tell Heartland News it will serve more customers in Dexter, because Dexter is seven times bigger than Bloomfield. But some in Bloomfield disagree, saying the move is political.
"Maybe some kinfolks of the governor involved. It has to be checked out," County Commissioner Frank Sifford said. The new fee agent, Susan Watkins, is a distant relation to Missouri Governor Bob Holden. The new offices are owned by Stephen Holden, a cousin to the Governor.
