(Richmond, IN)--Wayne County is considering ending the publishing of legal ads and public notices in the Palladium-Item. The county and other entities are legally required to publish notifications of meetings, sheriff’s sales, and a host of other issues. Historically, that’s been done in the local newspaper. But it’s not likely to happen any longer. County Attorney Ron Cross told Wayne County Commissioners that the Palladium has not been responsive to requests for legal ads. Cross added that Sheriff Jeff Cappa reported problems with advertising sheriff's sales with the Palladium-Item. Cross also said that other municipalities in Wayne County are also switching from the Palladium to Western Wayne News. Now, the county is considering using the Western Wayne News and Nettle Creek Gazette. A change would mean a significant savings. In the last four years, the county has spent $144,000 with the Palladium, but only $27,000 with Western Wayne News.
