Why would the County hire extra employees, summer jobs or contract mowing if they could use the jail inmates for that labor like is used for recycling?

Why not use those jail inmates for all the mowing football fields, city parks, industrial parks, at least till the County gets out of debt and lowers the property tax rates?

Paper today said that the Marshall County Commissioners voted 15 to 2 in favor of using 1.5 million of the 1.65 million they borrowed back in november on the credit of the taxpayers of Marshall County to pay another 1.5 million dollars mainly to help pay for the most recent work on the courthouse. They are also being asked to fund 17 million for a new school in chapel hill. When are the people of Marshall county going to wake up. These commissioners are putting us in debt that it will take our lifetime to possibly pay off. Why do we elected the same commissioners over and over as they put us deeper in debt and raising our taxes. We have the 3rd highest tax rate of ANY county in the State of Tennessee. What a crying shame. For those old enough to remember, do you remember the $25.00 wheel tax back in the 1970's that was only to last for about 20 to 25 years. Today that same wheel tax is $50.00 and has no date for elimination to my knowledge. Thank a county commissioner for all our debt and by all means vote for him when he runs for re-election. We must be crazy!!!
