May's Blount County Commission meeting was standing room only but the
only people allowed to stand against the wall were County Deputies in uniforms.
Chairman Moon ruled all the other taxpayers without seats were forced out into
the hall. Which accounted for the loudest applause of the meeting comming
after Commissioner Carter described how Blount County compares with other
"We SUCK" .
Taxpayer Keith Miller's remarks before the Commission said it best.
Washington's politics is characterized by an arrogant chief executive
who is happy to by-pass the legislature to bring hoards of illegals
over the border.
While OUR MAYOR attempts to overturn the results of the
$95 thousand dollar jail study with an absurd lawsuit, he and his finance director
fast tracked a total of $ 900 thousand dollars in capital fund expenditures through
a predominately lapdog commission... for the problematic Kronos project.
Not only that but he seconded the motion to send the commission the infamous
Evergreen compersation study which embodies all the rediculous, nature of
Obamacare in that you must vote on it before you can read it since it is
not yet finished.
The passing of the Evergreen Resolution to adopt it's pay scale
reccomendations according to page 4.7 means 507 employees are
to each get a $3444 (three thousand four hundred and forty four dollar)
The express need for the pay raises is the loss of qualified
personnel, and the difficulty in recuriting qualified replacements.
The Evergreen study on 3.3 reports that Blount County is above the national
average of tenure, 7 to 9 years with a tenure of 11.1 overall.
The Sherrif's Department average tenure is 10.1, jail is 8.4, juvenial detention 9.8,
sheriff school security 11.7. sheriff clerical 15.1, and sheriff C I D is 16.4.
The Evergreen salary increase will be funded by 6 cents of the 50 cent property
tax hike to be voted on in June's Commission meeting from Blount County workers
who average $28,000 a year while the minimun starting salary
and benefits for a county employee according to the Evergreen study is $ 28,000.
Voting to PASS the Evergreen TAX INCREASE were Dist. 10 Melton:
Dist.9, Allen and French:Dist 8 Caskey and Bowers, Dist 7 Stinnett,
Dist. 6 Crowe, Dist 5 Carver and Headrick; Dist. 4Moon and Farmer
Dist. 3 Caylor and Samples, Dist. 2 Lewis, Dist. 1 Carter the commissioner
who said Blount County S U C K S!!!
In Truth Radio's opinion Blount County really is JUST LIKE WASHINGTON'S
District or Criminals by the way they treat the people who pay them,
You can call the commission office at 273-5730 and ask how to contact
your commissioner and ask him if he draws a salary or any of his family ?
