That argument might have worked the past couple of years but Mr. Koleszar is incorrect given today's numbers. Why wasn't Mr. Koleszar fighting for less spending this year when they decided to spend $500K on rehabbing several school playgrounds? Where was he when they were approving bonuses for county employees? I simply don't get it, how can these people be so out of touch with the tax payers? I could easily fix the imbalance: immediate cut pay for all county workers by 10%, for the top 5% earners paycuts of 30%. Freeze all capitol spending projects, Drop the YMCA, Stop the Meadow Creek Parkway, Enact a pay to play fee system for all secondary county services, Renegotiate the Revenue sharing NON-agreement.
These are tough times so tough decisions need to be made.
Sorry but you don't have a clue. Learn your civics.
When playgrounds are unsafe, they must be replaced.
Cut all employees pay by 10-30% they will leave.(Although you'd probably say that was just as well, but exactly who do you think is going to do the work that needs to get done)
Freeze all capital spending. You apparently don't understand the concept of maintaining what we have as a means of avoiding further work next year.
Pay to play in secondary county services would turn the county into a feedom from the middle ages,
The revenue sharing agreement can ONLY be re-negotiated with City approval which they will not give. Stopping it will result in immediate litigation with C'ville which we will lose.
YMCA and Meadowcreek, well, nobody wants them anyway so I'll give you those.
But you clearly do not understand the differences between the School budget, and the county budget, of which the school budget is a part. The school board hasn't got a thing to do with the revenue sharing agreement, capital improvements or county services.
