Well, I see the County Council is as dumb as the City Council. Wonder when, if ever, can either of these councils ever say NO to the Mayor.

Why don't you get on the County Council if saying NO to the mayor is so important to you.

I think you have missed the point like you normally do.. This is about foolish spending and a NO might be in order before the county/city go broke. You can't just keep spending without knowing how much you are going to spend. If you continue to just keep putting money into this IVY tech you will have no choice at some point and you have to continue to do so because you have already invested to much. Does fiber optic ring a bell in your head.. Yeah foolish spending and not much in return. This will be no different.

Why don't elected officials listen to voters like us?

Why doesn't Ivy Tech have some money in this game?

Why doesn't the City keep ownership of the building and let Ivy Tech use it?

There are people out here that are just as smart as you are, PUNJAB. If you think it's a great idea, then good for you. That's your right.

Many of us don't and since elected officials and the local media don't want to listen, this is a way to at least get some public knowledge of questions out there.

So, the County Council "found" $200,000? Maybe they could've taken better care of the county employees health insurance with that kind of extra flow.

I agree, that is my point, theses politicians find money and have money when they want to. They could care less about their employees, you should know that by now...

I bet county roads, ditches, and other things will suffer as a result of that as well as the employees wages and benefits.

Too bad that Evan's drinks the mayor's flavor.

I POSTED this at one of the OTHER FORUMS but this is Fitting here also:(REALISTIC RESIDENT told me I had no business speaking since I didn't LIVE in Frankfort - But with an address in Michigantown guess THEY don't have any DOG in that race either so here goes)
Question.......... Does ANYONE over there remember TWO count them TWO EX Superintendent of Schools that came in to your little town and gave YOUR tax payers BIG ideas about EDUCATION like: TEARING down local schools-making your CHILDREN walk to those schools- raising the taxes then leaving: THEN ANOTHER one comes in and GETS YOUR tax payers to FUND an $800,000.00 TENNIS Court along with a Building that had BACK TAXES owed on it that YOUR tax monies ended up paying?? then THAT Superintendent ends up leaving your little town HIGH and dry? My fear is this...... WHAT ELSE IN THE NAME OF EDUCATION?????????? NOT ECONOMIC DEVELOPEMNET? Economic Development is a GOVERNMENT word for YOUR TAX MONEY.

Yes! I call that governance. Govt employees need a kick in the butt and see what health care costs so they need to participate in the footing of the bill. Follow a govt employee around for a few days and imagine an easier job.

Governance is benefitting the constituents and not just the employees.
