How do you think I feel I paid my IRS taxes to the city and then I had to turn around and pay it again with that tax. People keep saying someone stoled the money but the money was not stolen. The city paid their bills with it. That means the money went to the citizens of Blytheville. That means there's no criminal offense. What they did was wrong but not against the law, the way to deal with it is just vote people out of office. Which will not happen and people will keep crying.

I can appreciate what you mean, except what they did WAS against the law. That is why there were civil penalties.

Also we can't vote the people out that were responsible, they are not in office. We can vote people out who are not addressing the current problems, but you are right that this will probably not happen.

That's why it's called civil penalties and not criminal penalties.

Harrison is a 3 time loser. A low life who neglected his duties to safeguard public funds.

Just another way to enrich himself personally at the expense of others, with no remorse.

Bungled everything he has ever done.

What a legacy.
No better

Harrison took us from a 2 million dollar surplus, to a 3 million dollar deficit in the general fund.

ellington is not going to prosecute any politician who supported him.
citizens of blytheville should demand an FBI, A.G. or in the least an outside prosecutor.

The 1999 audit is the only place I have seen anything on the water department. They no longer included water department in the audit after 2000. They MAY be required to publish their financial statements in the paper but I don't know (and I haven't looked yet.

Anyway, Waterworks had an unreserved fund balance in 1999 of $1,382,841.

And the "Sewer Commission" had unreserved fund balance of $3,862,109.(I'm not familiar with the sewer commission and what they spend there money on)

It was 2 million but Barry cleaned it out.Barrett offerd public works to Merle Burnett but Merle was smart and wanted no part of the clown court so we were left scrapping the bottom of the barrell and ended up with Tricky rickey.
