Cutting wasteful spending

Cutting wasteful spending will offset the decline in tax revenue. It works everytime.

Yep. Don't talk to me about

Yep. Don't talk to me about raising millage rates when you spend SPLOST money to put roofs on church buildings and waste money on the symphony. When you get serious enough to only spend taxpayer dollars on county projects and you cut all the wasteful spending and corruption.....then come back and we will talk about the millage rate. The original intent of SPLOST was to relieve the property owner's tax burden and spread the taxing around to all county residents. But this does not have the desired effect when waste the money on non-government private party entities and then come back to the property owners and claim you are broke.
