CALLED MEETING –PART 1
WORKS DIRECTOR ON THE HOT SEAT
BOC had a special called meeting on 4/26/11 at 6PM.
The main topic of discussion was paving for
Feldspar Road and if there was a contract.
At the 4/18/11 meeting, the Public Works director
answers questions and assures the BOC there is a contract for Feldspar
Rd. Please listen to Will Brown; he is
there is a contract and tells the BOC and county attorney so:
At the special called meeting we learned that
was not a contract. The county manager made his usual comments of
“former employees and previous staff”.
Listen to Comm. Patrick’s comments here. She did not like it that the board had been
at the previous
meeting and didn’t buy the excuses.
Comm. Cox also
commented. He made several good points
and talked about procedures.
the meeting the Public
Works director got in the county truck and left. He
must have taken the county truck home
because his personal vehicle was at the PW department locked behind the
at 7:30PM that night. There has been
talk for many months that he takes the truck home on a regular basis,
appears no one cares to do anything about it.
watching and listening
at several meetings, one has to wonder why the BOC tolerates the
Hodges Farm Road and the Public Works director asking to have it paid
anyway, being lied to about the Feldspar Road contract and
costing an additional $20,550,
and hearing the county manager make excuses each and every time. The
Public Works director needs to have his
wings clipped a little and do the job he was hired to do –take
care of our
county roads! The BOC should wonder
the county manager actually supervises the Public Works director or if
just do anything he pleases.
