Any paying attention to this mess as of late ?

Here we have our court building falling a part with little or no maintenance over the last year. Who is charged with the City building maintenance activities anyways ? Must be again one of the Administrations employees whom are getting one of those nice big raises this year for doing such a great job !

How can the Administration propose building a brand new building during this budget times in JC ? Had they let the building fall in such disrepair with the hopes the City Commission would approve a new $1.0 million dollar plus building ?

With costs such as these I hope we are following fiscal policies on the hiring of design professionals etc. as these costs get out if hand fast.

One would think even spending a quarter of this million dollars plus, major repairs could and should be done to the existing building

In watching this all unfold over the last month I hope the City Commission is keeping a watchful eye on the Administrative group lead by Ms Beetty as looks like another out of control spend project of the City with money in which we don't have

Maybe they should just get the call-center building over by the new fire station and transform it into a court building??

Or any one of the dozens of vacant businesses and buildings in this withering city in its death throes. Mil levy down a couple of unnoticeable iotas , budget and debt up. Thirty years of belt tightening and reduced services won`t even get this city out of debt.

The truth hurts though, just one more golden path in which the administration is walking the City Commission down without all the facts being provided. Sounds like another hidden project, new renovated building for $1.0 million plus dollars. My only question is this, where has the maintenance on this building been? Why must we wait until things have fallen apart before we react? Fire the guys whom head up maintenance I say! We can't reduce our debt and yet we can increase taxes once again for a pet project of a select few.

There is nothing wrong with the Municipal Court Building. Just make the repairs and move on. Or use a Courtroom at the big Courthouse in the Afternoon. Fridays would be good and perhaps another day.
