It may suck to be a county employee and not get raises for a few years, but at least they still have jobs unlike a lot of folks!

The commissioners have no plan to try to bring the budget under control???

Lookat the budget see how it grows!
This is not funny they seem to spend more
and do less. Look at the hard surface roads
they are terrible.

There is absolutely no reason that they can not make cuts like the rest of us. Many, many people in the county have not seen increases in their wages and the cost of their health insurance is skyrocketing yet since we can't just force the taxpayers to put more money in our pockets, we find a way to make it work! Where the heck do they think we get the extra money? Do the county commissioners get paid? I don't believe that the city commissioners are paid. Time to get "real" and realize our pockets have been picked enough! Mark said that they are willing to listen to ideas so, let's give them some! I'm thinking that might be a good topic to suggest to Larry for the Soapbox since there are probably ex-employees that have some suggestions since they would know the operation better. Got to get a copy of the budget here pretty soon and maybe a copy of the employee handbook.

City commissioners are not paid and the county commissioners are. I think this is the way it is.

They need to pass a law that requires everyone to pay their taxes without using the (no)payment plan. That would generate some $$ and would lower the taxes for the rest of us who DO pay our share.
