Why does the City stir such controversy but the County government does not. It seems like no one even pays attention to what the County does.

Why does one person stir so much controversy when the others don't. It seems like no one pays attention to what the trouble starters are saying.

Why does the city hide their actions? Then when it blows up, controversy!

Mayor Baum will surely whip the council together & county & city will be a team, I am waiting for this to happen.

The city will issue 3 million in bonds with the deal of going up on water rates & I would guess water and garbage, so how much will the services increase? Anyone know?

The point is that the County spends a great deal of taxpayer money on projects for business development, water development, jails, etc. Some have been successful but several have either been a failure or are experiencing a great deal of difficulty. No one gripes about the County, or even seems to be interested. The focus is always on the City government, while the County flies under the radar. Why do you think that is?

Could it be because the county has a surplus of money,
and the city is carrying a lot of debt?

since it must be written in stone years ago, it doesnt appear to be fair that city people, pay county taxes...and county roads get fixed.. with the city needing some paving done... why cant county taxes help on that? yet county people dont pay city taxes... no fair to city tax payers

Why should the county fix city streets when the city isn't willing to work with the county on some projects? It is a two-way street!(pun) Why can't the city pave 3rd street by the jail? It was torn up before they built the jail. Sounds like you are a city employee.
