So far McFarland from parks and rec and Thacker from public works. A police officer has also been cut a $1.89 to the hour. All these have happend do due to the budget or so that is what has been told, but on the other hand they have went on a shopping spree at the pool and god only knows what the town hall has gained. And yet we don't have money to keep people that had a vision and dream for this town and where that wanted to see it go employed.

I would say were Roy had been with the town so long he was probably making a pretty good payday and the town didnt want to pay it no more. Cheap and not very loyal.

Poor Management, that is what I think, Budget worries well you have a breakdown month by month and if you are right now finding out you are in the Red then someone in MANAGEMENT needs to do their job. We can buy whatever and then when the work needs to be done where is the workers. I guess we are going to have to pick up some more INMATES to do the job. They are already going through the Garbage cans picking out the alumunium cans to trade in for MONEY. Yes I have seen this happen, I got a sticker at a garage in town and had to wait for the trash truck to move to get out of the bay. I really think this is disqusting that they do do, I wouldn't want anyone going through my garbage. I think we need to make the persons responsible for what is going on and if they aren't doing their job then a PINK SLIP they should get. Progress and Moving Forward what a laugh all I see is POOR MANAGEMENT and some who don't care. Get to work and do the job you are paid to do maybe some more classes might help in MANAGEMENT because I for one don't see much of that.

This town needs a manager NOT a politician. Appalachia is digesting way to much of unnasacery Wise co politics. We need someone that is going to stand up for this town and help us move into the future. We are so far from that now. Let's build our community not tear it apart.

I heard a rumor Thacker was terminated due to the fact he was showing up for work intoxicated or someone said he showed up for work with alcohol on his breath

I agree the town needs management not politicians. If we are so in the Red why keep investing in things like Fish Derbies, Railroad Days and October Car Show. You think we would spend our money wisely not just throw it out. Sometimes you have to give up extra activities and take care of business for what is best for the town. I think we need a head hunter, someone who comes in that is not from here and who can determine what we need in reference to hired help. You always hear rumors about what might have caused someone to get terminated. Just ask the two who works that know all and who tells all they will give you the real truth"NOT" that is not in their vocabulary. You know you keep stirring and the ____ will fly maybe their way. I am waiting for time to see who catches the big one, only a matter of time before someone does then lets see what is done.

I dont think its right to have inmates working for free and knocking people out of jobs.If they did away with the free inmate labor the town of Appy would be in a world of hurt.

This is Roy Thacjer's daughter. Yeah whoever told you that lied. That isn't true. He's number is in the phonebook, you want to ask him why he was fired; call him. He was terminated for a different reason.

This is to whoever started that rumor or who is just starting rumors- stop. Honestly if you don't know the actual reason he was terminated then don't say anything.
Thanks.:)

Yeah the upper management does have it informers. A little Red Truck parked at Town Hall every morning yup that how it goes. Everyone knows and everyone be careful cause you know how it is. But their are more workers than informers so let the workers handle that little problem. A SNITCH tells all whether the truth or not, he also informs on all whether it be Workers, Management or Council. So there it goes. No one is safe. Watch your britches or you will be next. Yes it is a shame that we are losing another worker, officer or whatever but we won't need them pretty soon when County takes us over, watch out there we go just watch and see, no one is safe and no one to be trusted. Keep you friends close just as you would your enemy cause it seems no one is trust worthy, yep that is how I see it. We are such a small town well who needs workers anyway, not us lets just get a few more inmates, more trust worthy than some I know, at least you know what you are us against with them.

Red snitching?? SURELY NOT!!!
.
Wasn't red on the Jerry Springer show about 10 or more years ago?
.
Most of the town workers can't even read or write and probably don't even have a High School Diploma!!
