Foolish

This does not seem wise. Do they really think the present plan is going to pass as is?

Faced with the possibility of statewide property tax reform, the Macon-Bibb County Board of Tax Assessors voted Wednesday to explore delaying – or even canceling – its $2 million effort for a new countywide revaluation.

“I don’t think we can sit still on this,” Assessor Chairman Bill Vaughn said after listening to an update from the chief appraiser about property tax reform plans being floated in Atlanta by various legislators. “We need to consider stopping (the revaluation) until we know what’s going to happen.”

They already screwed it up once. The digest is seriously out of date. Bibb County is Exhibit A for why the GREAT Plan should pass, though.

    Erik, now that you are on the Council, you can use some fiscal discipline and cut spending. Or do you want to abidcate your responsibility to the leadership of the General Assembly to determine how much of an allowance Macon will recieve.

    Yes, that is foolish. Does not mean the GreatPlan should pass. Trust your local idiots more than the Atlanta idiots.

    Segue into Threadjack…

    How is it possible that a student at Voldosta State was expelled for protesting a new parking garage, sued the school, got the President to retire early, and it’s hasn’t been in the news? Or has it, and I slept thru it?

    Paul Broun and Erick not getting sworn in has managed to avoid being in the news.

    yes, Rugby, but at least we talk about that here, hoping that someone from one of Cox’s newspapers or TV stations will eventually pick it up and run with it.

    Maybe SpaceyG can use some of her old media connections to get them to focus on Paul Broun and Erick’s plight.
