Take Action

Take Action



Next Thursday night, June 25 at 6:00PM, the BOC will have their meeting to set the millage rate for the county’s for FY16 budget. As you know, the BOC thinks if no one shows up, it means no one cares and the BOC can continue to raise taxes and do as they please. PENNAMON & DEGGES TEAM UP AND SAY CITIZENS ARE CONTENT WITH HIGHER TAXES

In addition, the Solid Waste Committee is supposed to give its recommendations about the landfill to the BOC that night (6/25/15).

The meeting will start at 6PM, and we need to get as many people to the courthouse as possible. We need to make sure the BOC knows we still care about what they do with the landfill just as much as we care about the direction of this county.

Gene Trammell responded to an email he was sent by a citizen, stating that “the vast majority of citizens represent the SILENT majority.” So does that mean he doesn’t listen to those that take time to let him know how they feel, because those that don’t speak agree with him??

We need to let them hear our voices loud and clear! Quit raising our taxes and wasting money, and we don’t like the direction our county is going with secret meetings and deals being made without public knowledge.

Please plan to attend the meeting on Thursday, June 25 at 6:00PM. Please, get your friends, neighbors, spouse, children, whoever to come and attend as well. We would love to have the courtroom filled with people and let the BOC know that we do care! If you would, please call and/or email people you know, it would be a big help in getting people to the meeting.

We plan to see you there!

Please share this on your Facebook page! We need to get the word out to everyone.

 Inform Yourself


Please forward this information!

Citizens, be informed and stay informed! Only by being informed can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County. That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.

      You may be right, but if we don’t show up we know for sure they will! Next year (2016) we have a chance to change 3 of BOC members–Dist 1, 3, and 5. People need to start thinking about running now. They will hear us for sure then!
