PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEES BUY LOTTERY TICKETS ON COUNTY TIME

Makes you wonder how often this happens….And you wonder why your road is never fixed properly?

The employees are too busy eating breakfast at Ingles, buying lottery tickets, or sleeping in their trucks to worry about working on your road.

April 24, 2017

 Even though we know of the problems, nothing is ever done about any of them.  Remember when Post Road was full of gravel and a motorcyclist was hurt and taken off in an ambulance?  Nothing was done about that.  No reprimands, no firings, no demotions.  In fact, everyone at Public Works got a nice raise, including the head honco that obviously supervises no one.

This morning at approximately 9:00am (2 hours after Public Works employees report for work), Jasper County Public Works Truck #1 pulled into a mini-mart in Newborn—NEWTON COUNTY  (Note: You can click on pictures to enlarge them.)

and parked beside the building

 

 Two employees (one in purple shirt) got out of the truck, went in, and bought lottery tickets

(the other one in navy work clothes and hat)

After going outside of the store and scratching off the tickets, they went back into the store to get more.  

They wasted a minimum of 20 minutes this morning doing this—remember, they are in NEWTON COUNTY. 

AND PLEASE, MIKE BENTON AND JASPER COUNTY BOC, QUIT MAKING EXCUSES FOR THIS CONTINUAL CRAP WE GET FROM PUBLIC WORKS

Oops and before they left, here comes a Jasper County deputy stopping in!

Who knows what these two Public Works employees did the rest of the day.  Probably something other than working.  STEALING TIME BY NOT WORKING AND GETTING PAID IS NO DIFFERENT THAN STEALING MONEY.

And DO NOT forget, the BOC wants you to approve a $4M SPLOST and a $7.5M bond so, among other things, they can buy Public Works more equipment and fix your road!

TWG

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.

  1. The purple shirt is the #2 person at Public Works says:

    Ha!Ha! You actually caught Greg Robinson out and not laying out at his house. Greg always has to have a driver because he is too lazy to actually do anything.

  2. Dirt Road Dweller says:

    That is the same truck that burns mileage up and down my dirt road. Accessing the condition of the dirt I suppose because nothing else is done to it.

  3. You're such a drama queen says:

    Since you obviously have nothing better to do, why didn’t you continue to stalk them for the rest of the day?

      Sorry, but this was a Jasper County taxpayer that saw all this and sent it to TWG. Unfortunately, it is people like you that think stealing and using county time and vehicles for personal use is OK.

    They are going to hire a hitman to come after you! I love what you are doing.

    What a waste of taxpayer money. Are there any adults in charge of anything in Jasper County government ?
