We have a few crazy things down here...I live in a city who has county properties...that are not included in the city??? confusing...sure is..
We have elections for city manager...and folks living in county part of the city cannot vote...
they do have less taxes and their water bills are less...I dont get it...but who am I??? just an ole Grandma who thinks a lot...God Bless our crazy country...county...city & town...each and everyone...down here and up north too...
