Here are some of the issues area residents are discussing. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motivated the callers:
It’s a shame the council voted to more than double their salaries. This county is doomed the way they tax the people.
Did no one consider that if they raise taxes too high people who have lost their jobs can’t pay them?
I read about the raises in the paper. Of course they’ll vote for it. It’s their money. There should be a law against that. They shouldn’t be able to vote for their own raise. And what about the recession?
