Liberty Countywide Planning Retreat
Last comment by wayne44 4 years, 9 months ago.

A story in the Sunday edition of the Coastal Courier reported that local officials are considering the pro's and con's of a retreat in the near future.

It seems that there are some concerned with the thought of spending public monies at some posh venue in another county.

Others seem to think that it could be held here perhaps at the performing arts center for much less of a cost.

This has been a source of criticism by local taxpayers.

What do you think??????????????

So our elected officials are once again telling us the taxpayers, that their critical thinking functions better on retreat all the while lining the coffers of some other county, perhaps they missed their calling in life and should have found a job on the Emerald Princess.

I'm in full agreement with JimmyMack, window dressing, eyewash, whatever you wish to call it, since it isn't their money that they are spending, what incentive do they have to be thrifty?!?!

Yes it is just PR to placate the unwashed masses. To have to go out of town in order to do the job for which you are paid to do is outragous. What other employer would place an employee out of town in order to make sure they are not doing personal stuff on the company's time?

The piece in the Courier did not reveal the cost and I think if we were made aware of the total cost we'd be outraged.

Our county organ needs to dig a little deeper into these things and we on this electronic watchdog need to encourage that.

Nothing stirs the creative juices of an entrenched bureaucrat like the steam of a distant buffet.

Spot on, It is the bureaucrats who push for these things such as county retreats.

The elected officials just don't seem to be able to say no.

Quoting HuDat1;

"Nothing stirs the creative juices of an entrenched bureaucrat like the steam of a distant buffet."

I bow in your direction, your post says it all, your creative writing teacher is to be heartily congratulated for a job well done! :D

Graeme245, I agree with you.

JimmyMack, there is a screen door here also.

Ain't no fiscal conservatism round here in good old Liberty County. Economy in poor condition, housing market down, and property taxes go up on the residents because the powers that be can't seem to grasp that concept. Check out what your home in worth today as compared to a few years ago. Also, check the rate of unemployment in the county.
