Information hard to come by in advance of budget swap

Tax rate up, spending at full throttle

Special to The Legendary
by R.S. Gates
Any time Commissioners meet in a special meeting, look out. On Monday they were advised the budget they voted on last week needed a little tweaking. Seems the necessary tweak was in the neighborhood of $2.5 million dollars. Contingency summary
Here is the curious part. The correspondence below details an attempt to secure the information prior to court.
Seems pretty non-eventful and routine. Note the last request was at 3:27 p.m.
The information considered by the court was sent a bit later.
Sure it was a coincidence the information just “happened” to not be available until the open request was fulfilled.
Probably not something to get excited about. It was only $2.5 million dollars.


  1. Democrats raised your taxes and now they appointed a democrat for treasurer,does this tell you something.

  2. Perry and Snell just got duked by Gibson,Mashek and Lewis.

  3. Bill is a good guy. Has 20 years of doing a good job. Got beat only because he ran as a democrat by an unqualified republican. Quit your crying. It's stupid, it's also obvious you don't know jack about how the treasurer's office is ran. Grip about Obama, not a common sense decision.

  4. Obama said he is a republican today and wants your support republicans,lets get behind him as did our commissioners.
