Wonder if Eddie asked for his old job back?
If the county is not broke why is that there are NCSD who have not had a raise? Why are our roads following apart? If we were not broke as you say we would have good roads! What bout our Cow Palace that was promised were is that?
@tomgahunter I think your right on point. SPLOST does not go to funding the critical things we need ! ROADS WORK! This is why I voted no also, it seems that SPLOST is used to build what we went but know we can't afford. I am sorry that @frustratedparent is upset with the lack of special needs theraputic programs but Newtown County is BROKE!
Who will take over this field once its built? It seems that our rec department will take on this task but the BOC seems to take money away. How much is this salary? Who maintains the grounds once built? We are forgetting our county is broke and this seems to be another SPLOST pork project. I feel for those handicap kids , but this needed to be funded through private donations. Our BOC said no to loans or bonds for SPLOST projects. Seems that what is happening here and they claim no intrest payments will be made from SPLOST. Why does the Bank not donate the funds to cover cost of intrerst? They are asking us all to donate with SPLOST! People are out of work and county workers have seen no raises for years. Yet this is what we choose to spend our money on. If a 501 (c3) wants a field they need to raise the capital on thier own. This sets a dangrous precednt to future 501 (c3) who wish to have SPLOST projects.
Our roads are falling apart all over the place. The BOC does nothing to adress this instead they are giving away the county treasury to Tommy Craig and BAXTER! What bout all this SPLOST its suppose to support the roads, btw where is your cow place ?
I dont understand why a company that builds homes would ask to ignore this standard to build a second entrance. Its builder scum that has ruined NC and places all over with their over building and lack of care in construction. How many builders have went bust and homeowners in subdivisions are left with the builders mess? I am glad that zoning is holding the builder to the fire and require the second entrance!
My question is why the BOC is funding a roof at the fielfd After all they are getting $1.5 million in SPLOST funds have obtained a bank loan to cover cost while they wait for the SPLOST to be collected. This roof should be paid out of the Miracle Leage's funds!!! Not the broke county wich can't fund its own employees!! Who is going to maintain the field once its built? Is there a plan to do that? I can see that there needs to be many things aired to the public and using public funds to provide for a 501C3 is not the thing we need to do now. They need to do some fundraisers or something because this is another reason taxes increased and departments lost funding!
I think that these shootings are becoming all too common here in our society. I think its time for parents and family to take more responsibility for their children's action. It had been published that Johnson attened the Obudsman school for at risk. This is a sign that something may be wrong. Now also I ask how does a 16 year old have access to a gun? Where are his parents? I am suprised that no one in the community especially the black community has come out and spoke out against what happened. I am sorry something like this has happened but lets get real and remember that the warning signs were posted long ago!
@Dennistay Douglass has said yes to taking loans out. He voted to accept the $21 million loan to Bear Creek which cost $61 million to construct where is the other $40 gonna come from? He also voted for the Waste Water Loan $7.5 milliion. That seems to me an increase in spending!!!! Your right about what was suppose to be funded by SPLOST has turned into a joke. What about the $7.5 million for hospitial, where is our Civic Center and Cow Place? We need to REPEAL SPLOST!!!
Some how Douglas is now viewed as a Saint. He claims he is a conservative Rep and does not want to increase any tax. He uses this raise as a scape goat he voted for both the loans for the DAM and WASTE WATER TREATMENT this is increasing county debt. The same thing he claims hes against!
