So typical of our county government. Facing financial trouble, once again they choose to tax and spend, leaving the ones who protect the citizens out in the cold.
The commissioners plan to give a 3% raise to those earning (we use that word loosely) less then $37,770 per year. Their ideology is, the ones making more can afford not to get a raise. Where have we heard this theme before? All in the time of fairness.
Who knows what's hidden below the surface? Furloughs days? Lose of paid holidays? We can't possibly know what these people are thinking. One week its close the north precinct and element 100 positions. The next week its higher 25 additional officers.
