CURRITUCK COUNTY USED OUR TAX DOLLARS TO BUILD A RESTAURANT CALLED THE CANTINE. NOW THAT ITS BEEN IN OPERATION IT STARTED ALLOWING ORDINARY CITIZENS THE USE THIS FACILITY WHICH TOOK BUSINESS FROM OUR LOCAL. AGAIN THESE PEOPLE DO NOT PAY ANY ELECTRIC, WATER, SEWER,GAS, RENT, PROPERTY TAXES, AND DID NOT PURCHASE EQUIPMENT OUR TAX DOLLARS PAID FOR THESE. WOULDNT IT BE NICE IF THE COUNTY WOULD BUILD ALL OUR BUSINESSES FREE FROM ALL THESE EVERYDAY EXPENSES.
NOW THIS WASNT ENOUGH. NOW THEY ARE EXPANDING OUT AND TAKING MORE BUSINESS FROM AREA PRIVATE BUSINESS. THE COUNTY MANAGER HAS ALLOWED THEM TO BID ON THE SENIOR NUTRITION PROGRAM WHICH SEVERAL LOCAL AND AREA BUSINESSES WERE BIDDING ON. ONE PROBLEM WE ALL HAVE ELECTRIC, WATER, SEWER,GAS,RENT AND PROPERTY TAXES TO PAY SO OF COARSE THEY WERE ABLE TO OUT BID EVERYONE IN THE PRIVATE BUSINESS. I QUESTION THE LEGALITY OF THIS BECAUSE TO ME THEY WENT TO THE COUNTY MANAGER AND SAID WE WILL GIVE YOU A PART OF THE PROFIT IF THEY WERE ALLOWED TO BID ON THE ACCOUNT. SO NOW THE COUNTY MANAGER IS OUT TAKING BUSINESS FROM LOCALS.

And what dose Fort Monroe have to do with illegal uses of county tax money? Maybe Fed taxes not county. Fed steeling is just as bad.

What happened to Currituck County?When I lived there you had know some to even get a job there. Not the county is now funding people to put up a resturant? How :STUPID" can a county be,unless it's someone is an employee of the county. like I said "It's Not who you know but who you "BLOW"
