Is there someplace where citizens of the county can review the entire budget? transparency would be good especially since the numbers outlined in the above definitely don’t add up. if the goal is to continue taxing realestate to cover expense and budget shortfalls, i dont think its a good plan. fine if its on over 2 million dollar properties or whatever but the entire structure needs to be revamped and looked at. including the way the “council” is structured. so many cooks in the kitchen all with fingers in the pot. so much chatter about affordable housing and the plans are all super weak… to the point that the council cant figure out the tax rate until now … the bills go out in July and are due in August!!! Thousands of dollars per house… tell me now, how is that helping people. “We don’t know how much your tax bill is going to be exactly and when we figure it out you po’ buggahs have 30 days to pay a few thousand dollars.” Fa’wah?! Just wrong and not right.
Crooked Mayor with a bunch of crooks spending money that they can’t afford. The nepotistic values of the county of Kauai is its own demise.
Did they find the missing one million dollars? Who stole all the gas? Is the mayor tied to rackets?
So many questions and the survey says…
What they can do is count the amount of cooks in the kitchen and fire all of them. If you only need two cooks, fire the others. Works on the profits.
