The taxpayers now provide the BOC with free smartphones and almost free health insurance, along with life insurance, retirement, and training costs in addition to their pay. Now they want the taxpayers to provide a “tablet” for their use?
Monday, June 4 at 6:00PM, the BOC will meet and discuss buying tablets (iPads), laptops and other portable devices for each commissioner… and probably the county manager, county clerk, finance director, and any other county employees that have cell phones we are paying for.
Will this make the commissioners smarter? Will it get things done faster? What will buying $??? of iPads, laptops, and/or other portable devices for each commissioner accomplish?
The BOC is discussing this now, so they can add it to the new budget.
The reaction when mentioning this idea to a few citizens is—“If they get one, I want one!!!! Why should they have one, with my money, when I can’t afford one myself?”
You can contact the BOC and let them know how you feel about this new, additional expense.

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.
