If this Board wants concessions,they should start with some of their own!,maybe like not putting in for milage,or taking a 1% decrease in their salaries,the saying you should lead by example?

If they would just come out and admit that they screwed up "big time" with the courthouse renovation project things would be different. Any resident of Franklin County has the right to go in and look at that new big addition with the gigantic panes of glass.
These new "conference" room created by the addition are filled with new furniture and rarely ever used- a completely ridiculous, non-essential purchase.
All of the cement work did not need to be replaced out on the main street side of the courthouse either. The cement that was there was not in ill repair or cracked anywhere.
It's my understanding that the total bill for this detail is in the area of $7,000,000 and there is still contractors running around in there!
