How is it that the county is so far in debt, and yet they allow the workers drive the county trucks and cars home and the county also furnish the gas and fuel for them to drive these vehicles home. City Police lives out of the city limits but yet they drive the cruisers home and the city pays also for their gas. Hmmmmmm maybe we the citizens can get the County and City to furnish us a vehicle and pay for our gas since we are tax payers!

I frequent the County offices at times & I have noticed a trend. A lot of those girls that works in those offices don't get a lunch break A LOT OF THE TIME. I don't think thats right. It is a law to get a break. The union should step in to protect the workers rights.
Sad you are

It is the workers fault for not insisting that they are allowed to take their breaks and/or lunch .... It is sad that you make an excuse to avoid the issue at hand were you hoping to avoid the subject by making us feel sorry for the people not smart enough to take a break when it is the law.

that if you drive a company truck home you have to pay taxes on the use of it; even if it is just to work and back you have to pay usage taxes on it when you file your income tax. Not much of a perk if you ask me

What a JOKE!!! Do you actually belive that ANY of the Employees of Williamsburg, Whitley Co., Corbin or even state employees are claiming anything like this on their individual taxes?!?! Vehicles, cell phones, etc. should be claimed! Tell Pat White - Judge: Danny Moses -(Steve Swartz wanabe); Mr. Wilson - Animal control; Mr. Davis - Co. rd. foreman; Mr. Mobley, Mr. O'Neil, Mr. Hamblin - Co. Jail; Mr. Prewitt - city water; Mr. Privett, Mr. Smith -city Fire Dept.; all of the county, city, and state law enforcment; state highway foremen; and many more. Can you imagine the money that could be used elsewhere??

Uh, I think you need to fast-forward to the present day from where you are obviously stuck in the past about 3-4 years ago!! Do you people never read the newspapers? Thanks to our County Judge Exec Pat White, Jr. our county, yes, WHITLEY COUNTY is now operating out of the red, and in the black!! That means we are NOT presently in frigging debt!!!!!!!!!! As for officials driving vehicles home, yes, they most definitely should be allowed to do that!! Most cops in the WPD live right here in city limits or perhaps right outside of city limits. Actually, can't think of one that does live outside city limits! Your post name "iwannabcountyworker " says it all: YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY JEALOUS OF THOSE WHO ARE AND IT SEEMS ESPECIALLY SO BECAUSE THEY DRIVE A CITY OR COUNTY VEHICLE. Some people just kill me. Get a bicycle if you can't afford a vehicle and gas. Do you even have a job? Well, if not get one and go to work every day and make your own way. These city and county workers do. Get over it.

It is amazing that people show their ignorance when opening their mouth!! Don't you realize how many of the city employees in question, live out of the limits? YOU ARE REALLY IN THE KNOW (HA HA HA)!!!

i think any city or county employee who's position reqires them to be on call for any reason should be provided a vehicle. but for work use, not to take on vacation or to knoxville or lexington on date night.
that being said, i think it's wrong to provide brand new vehicles for so many of the county employees who really have no 'official' need for it; when the starting wage for many county positions is barely above minimum wage. maybe if a few more folks furnished their own ride to work then the county could afford to pay it's people better. in turn, reducing the turn over rates, and relieving the strain on the system when people being paid a sadly low wage have to seek government assistance.

Yeah, well go back and re-read the original post, there dumbass. It mentions county workers and ONLY the WPD cops. Yes, it is amazing how people jump to conclusions when interpretting something they are trying to READ!!! The original post did NOT mention ALL City Employees!!!! SO THERE!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Excuse me! I forgot about Jackson. I said I actually could not THINK of one, but as you have pointed out there is one. Maybe there is MORE than one. Dang, people. Some of you are really touchy! OuCh!! Seriously, I agree with the above post I believe was written by "honestly". People who may need their vehicles at any time in case of emergency, I do feel they need to have their vehicles parked at home where they can jump in them and get to where they are needed without having to drive in to City Hall or wherever to pick up their vehicle. I do not know about all the other employees of the COUNTY. However, major persons like the Judge Exec and the Jailer, now these people I can understand. Perhaps there are too many others who really do not need their vehicles parked at home. I can understand Danny Moses needing his at home. It is used for emergency situations you know. And from all I have seen and read in the newspapers, it seems like he is always busy and works his @ss off! I will not pretend to know ALL of the county employees but in my previous post, I was referring to the ones who came to mind and the only ones mentioned in the city were the WPD. Thank you.
wow

And you know, why did you have to reply with such a smart-ass attitude? That was uncalled for. Geez. Are you the one who started this original thread in the first place?

Yes, I have posted under two different post names but just wanted to let all know "confused' and "wow" are both me before someone jumps my case for some reason. Moving on..."Need of Better Direction", since YOU KNOW SO MUCH, please tell us how many of the city employees in question live out of the limits? You DO realize that the original post was ONLY referring to the WPD, which I overlooked Shawn Jackson. But let's pick that brain of yours...why don't you name ALL the CITY employees YOU know that drive city vehicles home. Please, feel free to point us in the right direction...and remember, let's go outside of the WPD, which was what the original post mentioned in the first place. You have me intriqued now. Just how many city employees beside the WPD drive city vehicles home at night and get their gas paid for as well. We will be waiting patiently to hear from you as you seem to be so in the know....
confused and also wow

Hell, look at the members of the various boards that are appointed by the mayor and /or council. Some of those people don't live in the city (Rich Prewitt, Shelby Mays, Paul Rains, Herschel Roberts, and others). Why are these people involved with anything to do with they CITY??

Herschel Roberts lives on 12th St in Williamsburg. the problem with him isn't where he lives but the fact that he doens't know what the hell hes doing! I asked for an ordinance and he couldn't find it, but I was still expected to obey the missing ordinance WTF but because he's practically family I guess Roddy can't give him the boot

Danny Moses does work his ass off and he needs his vehicle in case of tornadoes large fires or other major accidents.

The county traesurer though doesn't need his chevy impala and he sure as hell dont need strobe lights in it! Somebody tell me why Jeff Gray has an Impala with blacked out windows, strobes, and a thin blue line sticker on the back glass!!
