HAYS COUNTY Commissioners Throwing Away Tax Dollars

8 October 2008 at 6:45:22 AM

Do Hays County Commissioners even see our failing economy?
Do they realize that taxpayers are overburdened already without throwing out more money for issues like the latest interest in an Elected Officials Compensation Plan and the extravagant proposal for road bonds?
Yes, elected officials should be "compensated" adequately.  But NOT NOW!
We just raised the pay of our law officers, which was needed.
But our teachers also should be compensated and county taxpayers need overdue tax relief.
Last year commissioners tried to get a bond package approved by voters that was $170 MILLION and it failed approval at the polls.
But that didn't stop commissioners.
This year a similar package valued at more than $207 MILLION has been proposed by commissioners under the premise that the plan was developed by a "Citizens Advisory Committee", whose members, by the way, were appointed BY THE COMMISSIONERS!
In an economy that is failing Americans at the national level, which has trickled down to the local level, do we really want to keep on spending MORE tax dollars?
While some of these issues may well be important to review, do we have to throw-out more tax dollars at this time?  Couldn't we wait a while for the economy to improve?  Or aren't there other, less expensive alternatives that would resolve a few of the issues instead of all of them at additional astronomical costs to overburdened taxpayers?
We should hold-off providing tax dollars to compensate elected officials.
We should avoid approving extravagant road bond packages and cut spending on issues and programs that are not urgent at this crucial period of economic uncertainty.
Spending huge amounts of our tax dollars at this time is foolhardy.
