When are they going cut their losses and sell Packerton Swamp?
Since a lot of their employees are Obama supporters, they should cut their medical coverage and get them on Obamacare, it would save the county around $6000 per employee per year. Some of the local schools should do the same

Make EMA office part time, there is no need for two full time positions in this office. Also reduce salaries of teh commissioners and department heads, they are all way over paid. All the actual county works are making on average $15.00 hour! Department heads are earning anywhere from $50-100k year! Come on it's simple to see where the money is going people!

What's the story with the head guy from the EMA? I see him driving around and see him on TV once in a while,but still don't know what he does except waste a lot of gas driving around in that BIG SUV.

The last majority commissioners should have voted a small increase rather than use all the money from the sale of Weatherwood to "balance" the budget and get re-elected. Instead like babies they voted for a 5% raise for the employees just so the new commissioners had to reverse it. But you see, Getz figured to get one more term in an retire and Billy needed a few more yrs to get his full pension. The dems were bad enough when they had Keith and all the power. Now on top if that they act like children.

It's like that in every town in Carbon County.People are voted off councils and within a year they're appointed when someone dies,quits or is sent to jail.Wait a minute,they never go to jail do they.

Exactly...$56,000 x 3 =$168,000! WHAAAAT

Commissioners are not even required to put in 40 hours a week either! So I think they should be paid half what they make.

Furthermore, some of the dept. heads need to be part time like the coroner.

Next to healthcare, salaries are the county's biggest damn cost

Basically he is a "what if" kinda person, major focus on terrorism, hazmat, etc. such as large scale catastrophic incidents like the tsunami in India or earthquake in Japan....you know stuff that never happens here. Have you ever seen a mountain made out of a mole hill, or ever thrown poop in a ceiling fan? Well that's what he does.
Its a big waste of money when it can be part time as needed, like his brother the coroner.
In fact there are several deputies who are VOLUNTEER that cover while the director is away!
I really think the county needs major re-evaluation from top to bottom because they are weak in places where they need to be strong, and strong where they don't need to be. Too many chiefs, not enough indians.
Everyone needs to relaize this at election time, it's your tax dollars people wake up!
