Kevin, please stopping commenting. You have no idea what you are talking about. The School taxes and County taxes are two different things. You have convinced me that you don't pay taxes or you are just an idiot plain and simple. Either way you should not be commenting on this story. If you bought something back in 2005 (other than gold) and sold it today for the same price you would be pretty happy. That includes land, vehicles, houses, etc. Stop being an idiot just because you can! Stopping what services to cities? The cities were basically paying for county police protection when they had their own police force. The county police did not really patrol inside the cities in the first place so no reduction was needed. You are the guy that hangs out around the water cooler at work and picks up bits and pieces of conversations. Then you turn around and post them here like you know what you are talking about.
SPLOST has been a good thing for Gwinnett County. Hearing that a large chunk of the revenue will go towards infrastructure is good. I would caution every voter who is going to blindly walk in and vote No. With SPLOST we get some revenue from the people who come to Gwinnett from other Counties. What happens if SPLOST is voted down? Do you think property taxes will stay the same? A No vote will just put the whole burden on Gwinnett residents in the long run. Roads and bridges have to be built, repaired, and improved no matter if you vote yes or no.
Please don't post your thoughts if you have no idea what you are talking about. Kevin has absolutely no clue what is going on here.
The Mayor or City Council have little to do with Grayson's moderate success. The schools are ran by Gwinnett County, they have police and fire protection from the County. Who are the roads maintained by? Typical Gwinnett Daily Post article that misleads the readers and does little investigating into the real stories. Enacting a few sign ordinances does not promote the high quality of life that the writer of this story and the Mayor claim. The population increase from the 80's is not due to anything the City of Grayson has done. Gwinnett as a County had a population boom since the 80's. However, I would like to thank Mayor Hinkle for his contribution to the community.
I have a friend who is a cop for Gwinnett. He said it used to be a great place to work. He said not so much anymore. He also said they are losing officers and made the comment it feels like a "sinking ship." I guess Gwinnett is destined to become the next Clayton or DeKalb County.
If the bulk of this money is going towards roads then I say vote yes. If I am going to be taxed extra then SPLOST is the way to go. That way we even get money from folks who live outside Gwinnett and spend money here. Lets face it, Gwinnett needs road improvements all over the place.
I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think the State of Georgia benefits from ticket fines written by Troopers. I think the revenue goes towards the County or City where the ticket was given or in other words what Court system processes the fine. Can a police officer help us out with this question?
Amadi is an adult in the eyes of the law. His father could not have given him permission to break the law. Amadi is responsible for the accident plain and simple. Stop trying to blame the Cops for enforcing the law and doing their jobs correctly.
I pretty sure someone losing their life in an auto accident is a "larger issue." I can't think of many issues that are larger.
