They can't afford it, unless the people are willing to pay five or six times the taxes

the town of bulls gap can afford it they have be for if they say they can't if thats the case then then need to cash in one of the 100,000 dollar cd's they have got in the bank and start one then if they would quit having 4and 5 people on the street dept. and quit working part time people then they might have some money the funny thing to me is when Tammy Davis was mayor they had a police dept. the city would have the money if some people would quit pocking it

You may have gone to a meeting and they may have a CD but you obviously havent done the math because a hundred thousand dollars wouldnt get started good. I also heard they were going to have to replace some sewer pump stations at a cost in excess of 100,000 dollars each. Where would that money come from Einstein ?

Where would they get the money to fund the police dept? Do you live in the city and are you paying city taxes and if so are you prepared to have your taxes raised to 5 times higher than they are now? Bulls Gap has a lower tax rate than any city around here except for Mosheim the folks in Bulls Gap dont know what city tax is about. Hawkins County tax rate is an arm and a leg but the city rate is virtually nothing in comparison. By the way I guarantee you the sewer in bulls gap doesn`t pay its way and certainly doesnt make enough to replace those lift stations. The town where I live had to replace some of these so I know what Im talking about. No you dont know what you`re talking about .

To mad citizen I have been to every meeting and you say you have been to the meetings well that is funny because most of the time only people that have been there are the mayor and the board. The recorder, people from the railroad museum, the lady that got her rd closed which was the stupid thing they have ever done. the newspaper reporter and myself. So which are you. As for a new computer yes they had to get a new one required by the state of tenn. If they wanted to stay in business they had to buy what is required it does the payroll and taxes and other city business. For the answering machine they switch to comcast because they had to have dsl internet for the new computer. comcast was the cheaspest there is no anser machine if no one answer it goes into voice mail to comcast but the city doesn't get it so don;t leave a message. what you pay for sewer doesn't pay close to have the sewer fix. They are going to have to buy several new pumps. As for the police dept if you had been to the meetings you would have heard the man from knoxville which help set up police dept. explain what it would cost to just set one up. If you want your taxes to go sky high are you some one that rent are lives in one of the apartment in bulls gap so you don't care. yes tammy davis had a police dept but if you go and check the records you will see they cost the town plenty of money. most every policeman they had all they done was chase young girls. I know first hand I had a daughter and answer many late calls wanting my daughter to come meet him. The people in bulls gap are not instering in the town but set home and complain. come to the meetings and see what is going on and all the money being spent every mo. is posted on the bulletin board at city hall you can see for yourself.

No the town doesn't, end of story. It can't afford a full time dept. and anything less than full time is a waste of my tax money.
