The first Clay County Cracker Barrel for 2009 has been scheduled.
The event will take place at the Cory Fire House, Saturday, Jan. 17.
Clay County Farm Bureau will sponsor the event, which is set for 10 a.m.
Clay County Farm Bureau representative David Schopmeyer said the main topic he expects will be discussed would be House Bill 1001, which delves specifically into property taxes for homeowners, farmers and businesses.
"(State officials) are trying to get that in the state constitution," Schopmeyer told The Brazil Times. "But Farm Bureau doesn't want that to happen.
"There was a lot of controversy about that. (Farm Bureau) thinks (farmers' taxes) are too high now."
State legislators expected to attend the event include Sen. Richard Bray, Sen. John Waterman, and Representatives Nancy Michael, Vern Tincher and Clyde Kersey.
The public is invited to attend the meeting.
Schopmeyer added plans are being made for more Cracker Barrels to be scheduled, but no dates have been set yet.
