I guess no gas money for a trip to Gaslands.

To blogger number one, Andy is NOT spending more money he simply is filling a vacancy in a position that has already been there. As to him lying about his salary you misread that article all those months ago. He was willing to take a smaller salary UNTIL the reimbursement money came in from the state, however state laws prevented him from doing this.

As to blogger number two. You may like those pin oaks, but the roots are destroying the foundation of the Gunzburger Annex so unless you fancy hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars going to restructuring the foundation you should be grateful that the Commissioners have the foresight to prevent this from happening.

Blogger 4.....there are more problems with that buildings than the roots. Pin Oaks are planted in residential areas and near buildings because of their shallow root system....

Funny how the Gunzzy Building was just a decade or so ago deemed unsafe for human occupancy ... but now hundreds of humans occupy it every day.

Was is just the school boards ploy to get a new grade school then? (Was the cost to renovate cheaper then a new school?)

If you say new was cheaper, then why not a new annex instead of taking over the Gunzzy bulding?

Where is the cost savings report showing how much the county saves us taxe payers by having this Gunzzy building?

the commissioners wanted those fancy offices to rest there lazey a-- in.

Some people have short memories. The former commissioners were ready to take out a loan of I think $5 million dollars or maybe $3 million dollars to build a big new annex across from the jail but then the old school got donated to the county and so that saved a lot of money and solved a space crunch. Then the new commissioners got some offices to come into the old school and use the rent to pay off maintainance and cleaning costs and fixup there so it ended up saving the taxpayers a lot of debt repayment and what is wrong with that?

Oh you just GOTTA love how time heals the wounds of lies!

Just give it some time and you can twist your lies up into a nice little alternate reality that everyone will believe, because apparently memory doesn't serve those around here well.

Factor in increased cooling costs when removing those trees....they shade a lot of windows that face east and south. Those fancy conference rooms will be getting even hotter!!!!
