THE BOC RETREATS TO ATHENS!

April 13, 2016

Retreat

It must be too hot in Jasper County for the Jasper County Commissioners.  They are retreating to Athens to discuss county business, and they need a facilitator to help them discuss what is important to Jasper County.  For some reason they can not openly discuss county business in front of the citizens that pay for all their plans to spend money or tax us more.  They are having this retreat during a week day when the everyday citizen is working to support the spending habit of the BOC and is therefore unable to attend.

The agenda—a copy presented below—has an unusual item on it: “Commissioner-County Manager Relations.”  Why would this item be on the agenda?  Is it because two commissioners (Trammell & Pennamon) are busy micromanaging everything that happens on a daily basis (with the frequent assistance of a 3rd commissioner-Salmon)? Or is there another reason–why the County Manager is still considered “interim” after 9 months?

TWG comments are in blue on the agenda.  Yes, an actual agenda has been published after the Attorney General sent the county attorney a letter addressing the lack of an agenda at the 3/31/16 work session.

3:00 P.M.         ADJOURN                                                          JIM DOVE

 

Will the county attorney be attending the retreat?  There are no legal items are on the agenda.  However, it will be another way to spend money on unnecessary things.

One Response to THE BOC RETREATS TO ATHENS!

  1. We Get What We Allow says:

    As the old idiom goes, Trammell and Dyer being thick as thieves, I’d be surprised to hear Gene Trammell turned up at the “retreat” without lunch buddy David Dyer. Plus, it’s in the interest of the greater good of Dyer’s bank account that he attend to wield his influence on new economic targets of personal opportunity. After all, other than a few unscrupulous bankers, who has profited more from economic development in this county but David Dyer?

    And, the tag-along county attorney who inherited his position from his Newton County employer, yeah well, he needs to attend in order iron out the legal wrinkles so when Trammell drops another of Dyer’s ticking debt bombs in the Jasper County taxpayers’ lap, any recourse by legal means will already have been rendered impossible.

    The only thing that will come out of this so called retreat is a covenant of crony corruption.
    Deception and back room deals are the only two things the Trammell administration can be counted on to do well.
    Bet on it.
