no more money

Lewisburg, TN

#1 Feb 14, 2013
County commission wants to add a new school at Chapel Hill. Cost will be around $17 million according to the paper. We are already the 5th highest taxed county in the entire state, how can we afford to do this AT THIS TIME. If paid by taxes we will become number 1 taxed county in the state. Guess that will attract a lot of new business owners to our county. Hope they would just add a wing to Forrest for the 6 grade and build a wing oN CHES for the 4 and 5th grades. At least for the time being until we get some of the other things paid off. Education is important but at what price and under what terms. How many county commissioners are school teachers or are related to school teachers or works for the county. This is a BIG CONFLICT of interest as stated by Mr. Davidson in his letter to the editor was week. What would be your solution?

there is more than a majority that are on the commission working for, related to, or paid by the county or city - it is very much a direct conflict of interest and I don't know how it can go on as long as it has, and for several years it has, without public outcry - but it seems no one cares - attitude of I don't have to worry about it, let them have self-interest, the deck is stacked anyway.

Is Marshall County the 3rd or 5th highest taxed county in the state with a $50 wheel sticker? County commissioners or school board wanting to give coaches a 42% increase in their supplement? This can't be true with all the money problems the county is having at this time, it must be a misprint in the paper or the reporter got it wrong.

LIST OF MARSHALL COUNTY FUNDING PROBLEMS
1). Court house improvements? half million? Where is the money
coming from?
2). Parking lot purchase?$75,000? Where is the money coming from?
3). SRO's for the schools?$400,000?Where is the money coming from?
4). 42% increase in coaching supplements? Don't have any idea?
Where is the money coming from?
5). New school and staff at Chapel Hill.$17 million? Where is the
money coming from?

Marshall County tax payers better take a stand or you will really end up paying for it! The money will come from your pocket! Where has all the money been spent in the past to put us at such a high tax rate already? Are we living within our means or all these thing a wish list? If all these things have not already been funded by the county commission and are passed this year then we will become the number one taxed county in the state. How did these people get elected?
