if the government would use the money that they have the right way taxes and water and sewer wouldn't have to be a factor. 40% of fuel tax goes to road repair where does the other 60% go I'm tired of having to fork out my hard earned money because gov. doesn't know how to buget!!!!

Have you ever heard of the Hatfields and the McCoys?

Well, that what you have with the Upper and Lower areas of government with Dorchester County. There is no long term plan of how we need to grow the county, or more importantly, how we grow or trim our government. It is more of a "me" attitude, rather than a "we" attitude in Dorchester County. This has caused duplications in the staffing and facilities for years. Why can't we be a "we" county? This would certainly make less costs, thus saving the taxpayers.

We need someone out here in Corey Woods to do a job that has NOT been taken care of for a long time. The drainage ditch which runs behind the homes off of Loblolly, Rebellion and Farmhill are packed with trash and it has not been serviced in years. My husband walked the length of the drainage ditch and saw the reason why this area floods out. The pipes are at the dirt level and clogged with debris and trash and overgrown trees. The drain on the streets that are suppose to handle the amount of water during a rainstorm are full of trash so the water CAN NOT drain into the storm drain itself. It backs up because it is clogged and the pipes are rusty. So, when are you going to out here correcting the problem? We can show you exactly where the problem is.
