NOV 23 - STRAY HEARTS ANIMAL RESCUE MET WITH JUDGE/EXECUTIVE CALLAHAM ABOUT THE ANIMAL SHELTER
NOV 16 - LETTER TO EDITOR
Having attended the fiscal court meeting last Thursday I was somewhat surprised by things that were said and things that were not said.
The meeting started with a video depicting that they all have known for years that severance tax is declining. The video also showed that they made no adjustments to compensate for the decline. The video did not show the current year budget showing how much money was available without a tax increase. The video did not show the costs of the new court house and how it effected the budget! The video did not demonstrate a “need” to “build” a new court house. The judge just said it is 79 years old (actually 80) to suggest that is reason enough to put the county in debt. He said it has asbestos in it. We'll get a copy of the study. He said people who work in there have gotten cancer. That's true but people who don't work in there get cancer! Many public buildings in KY are much older. One is the governor's mansion. A lot of the people drink the water and get cancer, so we don't need to start that!
Then, he threatened the folks! He said if the county didn't get a property tax raise “we” could put on a “fire tax” and a “911 tax”. He forgot to add “if you folks don't mind”.
Several folks voiced their opposition to the huge increase in the tax rate and as they were commenting the judge gave the impression to some that he was playing a game on his iphone! One fella even sternly told him to “look at me when I talk to you”. Games or not he did not seem interested in what the citizens were saying. That's a no no!
Neither the judge nor the magistrates ever stated how much the new court house is costing us. No one would say how much the we have to pay annually for the loan (bonds) or how many years we will have to pay.
I'ts similar to how teenagers behave. They ask for something and some will make demands on their parents that they get something for them. They are not concerned about the costs nor where the money comes from to pay for it. They just demand it and expect their parents to pay for it. The boys wanted a new court house, now they want to raise everybody's taxes and the folks to pay for it but they won't tell us what it cost. Now, doesn't that sound like a teenager? Shame, shame!
Then the judge threatened to cut the sheriff's budget. Naughty, naughty. Sheriff works hard and has reduced the drug exposure, has a lot of evidence and when his budget is cut the drugs come back to harm our kids. On top of that, the judge wants to move everybody out of the current facility but the space the sheriff will have in the castle is about half what he has now. NOT RIGHT! The boys need to let him keep what space he needs in the current building. He'll have to take evidence to Ashland for storage at additional cost. Just terrible.
And, the air in the “old” courthouse will clear up if the filters in the heat-cool system are changed regularly. This county has a huge amount of dust in the air and filters at the house have to be changed regularly too.
In summary: we need an itemized cost of the new building, the amount of the grant, how much the county owes, the rate on the bonds, and the amount due each year and for how many years. We need to know what administrative cuts you will make before even thinking about raising any tax on the folks. You know, when politicians won't tell you the answer it always makes you wonder if they are trying to hide something ! Naughty, naughty.
Now, it may appear that I'm mad at the boys but I'm not. I have no personal animosity at all and each of them are welcome at my house. But, we use city water to make coffee...
