Imagine this. The city of Jenkins now makes you pay to work in the city. I have paid more in the last two paychecks to the city than I have to medicare.
I live in the city and I would like to know what the money I am paying the city is used for. The road to my house is full of potholes. THe water is known drinkable and brown most of the time. And you rarely see a police car in our neighbor hood..
SO can anyone tell me why I am paying to work in the city.
so sad

City is just ripping off the people who actually work in it. I guess we all need to get on a check and let the city find someway else to rob it's people.

Not complaning that there is a tax. But when it takes a 1/3 of your pay check thats a bit much... ANd as far as G.C. being the best mayor. Well if thats the best we are all in trouble....

The new tax rate is 1.5 percent. I think you should check your numbers before you blow up and lie about something. I have friends paying 3 percent in many other towns. Let's hope the county and the school system do not impose this tax too (they can and probably will in a few years).

(HELLO) I know what the tax rate is. I slso know how much of my paycheck is missing. Before you call someone a lier. You best know what your talking about.
The reason I'm so upset is ok they take the tax but what is it used for. I've seen nothing improved by it. Still can't get a pothole filled. And the police are non exisit around here.
I know this is proably the mayor wife trying to pump him up. Well if he had a backbone he would tell her to chill and start listening to the people who live here.

I fully agree with us have an occupation tax. But I don't agree with the way city money is being used. The cops we have now don't do anything , partially out of being scared by the mayor and his wife that they might offend one of their buddies and get fired, second because they have no real leader now" yes I said it letting swindall gowns very ignorant " . I also watch this so called mayor drive around in the police car that our police can't use and even see his wife and friends driving it. We also are wasting money on thing now like todd depreist and bennie mccall which are completely un- needed. And he spends on what ever he and his wife want.

You said the new tax takes 1/3 of your paycheck. Just stating the obvious and no this is not the mayor's wife. Anyone who reads the paper and watches the meetings on channel 98 know the facts. Thanks and have a great day...

If you don't approve of the way funds are spent attend the council meetings, write a letter to the editor of the newspaper, run for city council or run for mayor. I'll agree with you, nothing is perfect in Jenkins but it beats many other places I have seen.
