Alot of times they'll throw it into the general fund, turn it into money market funds, skim the interest, you never see it roll out , splost has a flow velocity that moves fast , nobody watches a city's books , they only tell you now what they wan't you to know , just go do a freedom of infomation act on city administration's payroll. YOU'LL BE SUPRISED WHO MAKES WHAT!

By law splost money must be spent for specific projects. If you think different you are wrong. Why would we elect or hire people that we cannot trust. Are all citizens honest? No, but the majority are the same goes for government. If you think things are so bad where you are then by all means get involved.

Less than average get involved be part of the solution to the problem that you think that you have identified. Georgia does not run a deficit because of a law that has been passed. It is a fact that crooks exist in all aspects of life, I choose to believe that they are the exception not the rule. Once you give me a reason not to trust you I won't. Someone with your attitude gives me that reason. It has been my experience that one justifies their actions by believing that everyone is doing it already. Please return the money that you have taken.

Beleive what you wan't hot shot ! Just for the fact's,(I)don't owe shit but high taxes. Hondo22k asked a question and i gave him or her an answer from what i have seen . You must've been born after the(lost)was voted in the early 80's. Later (splost )was concieved, By vote(lost)was voted in for sewer and water infrastucture -ONLY, in other words "replacement" of nearly 100 yr old pipes and water and sewer plant upgrades that has'nt been done to date . Have you seen Atlanta's water main breakage problem? Do you get that good smell when you go by six flags early on a hot summer morning on I-20? It's because lost wen't to splost because the mayor's and council's seen the money flowing in and guess what -it then was thought (hmmm, we need that money to put up a tree or a park)-GET IT and to go for recreation and other items as that . HEY,DON'T TRUST ME !!!!, I COULD GIVE A SHIT LESS! When it all collapses their hundies will be no better than mine slick. P.S. you better get you some water , Haralson,Co AIN'T gonna get a lake no time soon. That's All Folk's!!!!

As I said these taxes are earmarked for specific purposes. If you do not agree with these purposes than vote against it. I did not use vulgar language and would appreciate it if none were directed toward me. If you are not a crook you should never generalize but instead name names of which you have proof. I am a child of the 60's so I do remember, I also choose to believe in the process by happily helping my fellow citizens with my tax dollars. Also i am not slick just fat.

Anyone wanting to know what happens to the SPLOST money, the County Commissioners Office is the administrator of ALL the funds distributed for the county and all the cities. Citizens have the right to look at all the expenditures for SPLOST, its public record. Allen Poole should have no reservations about providing the details, right Allen?
