That dad-gum TWG is just a bunch of liars according to Chairman Gene Trammell and Comm. Craig Salmon. Just ask these two. TWG just makes stuff up and the videos are all out of context….so they say.
TWG reported that the BOC voted to pass the FY17 budget and the millage rate illegally on 5/23/16 because they did not allow any public input nor did they advertise properly. (That old State Law got in the way of this BOC doing what they want, when they want, and how they want.)
Chairman Gene Trammell answered that report in a 5/31/16 email and said, “I do not understand why you persist in reporting half truth and pure lies. We did not vote to advertise a budget, we voted on a millage rate that we could live with.”
If they BOC already voted on a millage rate, then why are they advertising a “proposed” millage rate to be voted on June 23, 2016 –AFTER public hearings on June 13, 2016?
In fact, there are all sorts of ads about the “proposed” FY17 budget, the “proposed” millage rate, and the public hearings in this week’s Monticello News. It must be because they decided they actually did have to follow the law to have a legal budget.
Just wondering when the BOC met to vote on when the public hearing would be and on agreeing to place the ads in the paper. This must have been decided by Trammell and Pennamon at one of their daily meetings, because it surely wasn’t in a public meeting.
Don’t you just hate it when someone has to call you a liar to try to cover up something? Commissioners, if you didn’t vote on the millage rate and the FY17 budget on 5/23/16 as the videos show you did, just what do you think you voted on?
