Using Albey's words like "suspicious"? Albey cheerfully accepts taxpayer money, too - then doesn't use it for the purpose it was taken. Remember, Albey says you can keep a station open for $100 a month. Then why doesn't Frakes keep their station open for $100 a month? They take taxpayer money, too.So we the taxpayers of the county are to give in to essentially to the blackmail of the BCVFD?
Either pay anything or everything they demand or they simply say screw you all. We have your tax dollars already piss on you.
You know some of the money was listed on the BCVFD 990's as grants. With most grants as they are written for governments the property purchased by that money belongs to the entity giving the grant, would that be the fiscal court? It would be an interesting legal question.
Tough if you don't like my "ramblings" I don't answer to the the BCVFD board, I along with a bunch of other taxpayer paid for their fire engines and equipment through my taxes so I damn well have a right to be angry when they cheerily accepted taxpayer money for their fire department, then said screw you we are closing up shop.
You know in any other situation when an entity agrees to provide services for a price, then accepts money and then closes up shop it looks very suspicious, if not criminal.
BCFD needs to return the taxpayers money to the fiscal court so it can be refunded. If they have any honesty about them at all it's the right thing to do. Same with the fiscal court.
Is that deputy Rob giving grant money advice? Seems like all the volunteer departments around the state getting grant money see it different. But the courthouse is open most days so have Albey spend more taxpayer money on that idea. And that boy Rob needs to get him a job instead of riding around with Colby. Maybe he's a deputy clerk, too. Bruce could use another deputy. Out of all three, we might get a day's work out of him.
