  • Right way to get solutions

     Getting to the bottom of waste spending is great.

    That’s what people love to see.

    Taxpayers want to know that their money is being spent properly.

    However, there should be a right way to go about doing it. We already know the wrong way.

    The recent battle between fiscal court and the jailer is a prime example of not doing it right.

    We have no problem with trying to figure out if there is wasteful spending.

    We have concern if there are too many hours spent on overtime.
