The city of Austin also approved the Herald as the city’s official newspaper.

On Tuesday, the county board unanimously selected the Herald as legal publisher.

The county board selected the Herald over the LeRoy Independent, citing the Herald’s larger circulation. Board Chairman Jerry Reinartz said it was important to have the notices available to a high number of county residents.
