So Punjabby ....
The original projected numbers were $1M from Taxpayers and a total project cost of $2.5M - This comes from the original announcement.
Now the project is costing $3.5M and the Taxpayers are on the hook for $1.35M.
Project cost is up 40% from original while Taxpayers portion is up 35%!
Punjabby, you would not have a job if your project had an overrun of 35% to 40%.
Why is this acceptable with Government projects?
How is this living within our means or treating this as a household budget? The Mayor was quoted as the project was such last week.
Hey Punjab,

Can't you put your twisted logic on this?

Sure, cost overruns are nothing new. They happen in both the private and public sector all the time. Now if the real cost had been almost double or more than the original estimate then that would raise my eyebrows. But this? Not a big deal in the overall scheme of things.

I'd love to have you as a customer. Sorry Mr. Punjab, we ran into some extra things and as a result, we have to charge you more than your contract states.

That depends on the contract. Some are more open-ended than others.

Punjabby has once again not answered the question.

The Mayor said IVY Tech with a 40% cost overrun and a 35% increase in taxpayer burden that this is living within our means and like running a household budget.

Even though you state you did not vote for McBarnes, how can you justify and support such a statement?

As I said before, initial estimates on a project on this size are seldom accurate and are frequently lowballed. Not a big deal. I trust the Mayor and the City Council to do the right thing.

I've have seen no increase in my taxpayer burden. In fact my property taxes fell this past year.

And where is the outrage at the Clinton County Councilmen who are also approving their portion of this project? Why is all this rage and foaming at the mouth aimed solely at the Frankfort Mayor?

I don't disagree with you in the fact the blame should also be placed on both the city/county council, they are voting yes..

However, just because your tax rate hasn't went up doesn't mean this is the right choice to be spending this kind of money. Again, if and only if they can pay for the portion of the stellar grant from the budget, along with the fixing of the Old Stoney, the South Maish Road project and a new fire truck, then I will say they all are doing wonderful things. However, I don't believe it to be possible. Time will tell
