BOC refuses to move forward on SPLOST Roads
refuses to pick SPLOST road(s) even though they had a special called meeting to
do so—the gang of 3 continues to block all suggestions
Once again NO decision was made at the called meeting on April 29, and
instead of discussing the SPLOST roads, the meeting was adjourned with a 3-2
an hour after the meeting 3 commissioners were still together and discussing
something. Comm. Pennamon was
sitting in his truck on the square while Comm. Bernard and Comm. Hill were
standing outside around 12:40PM. Comm.
Hill was busy beating his fingers on the hood of the truck making some kind of
point. This little tailgate party must
have had some effect.
At the May 3
meeting Comm. Bernard and Comm. Hill voted NO with Comm. Pennamon abstaining (the
attorney said this effectively was a no vote ) to do the following SPLOST
roads—Hodges Farm, East Bullard, and Feldspar Rd. Comm. Cox and Commissioner Patrick voted
** To keep the taxpayers of Jasper County, Georgia
informed as to where and how their tax dollars are
** To keep the taxpayers abreast of local policies
and laws being discussed and enacted.
** We advocate more open government, less government
spending, and lower property taxes.
