imurdaddy 1 year, 7 months ago on Fire dept. to get new maintenance building

Kevin, since they are consolidating other work locations into one, I assume the cost for heat and a/c will actually be less. They will be cooling and heating one building rather than two or three or more.


imurdaddy 1 year, 7 months ago on Ga. 20 to get new turn lane at Hurricane Shoals

Is this from a DOT Press Release? It does not make any sense. SR 20 runs north/south. SR 316 runs east/west. There is no SR 20 west to Hurricane Shoals Road.

Also, I love the line "...drivers will have access to the new turn lane, weather permitting, as soon as the lane reopens." Someone has a keen grasp of the obvious.


imurdaddy 1 year, 7 months ago on New car title tax begins March 1

Yes, I have all the paperwork and proof of what I paid. The website asked for my VIN and filled in all the blanks, which matched my numbers. They show the "Fair Market Value" which is considerably more than what I paid. Even so, it said $0.00 to opt in, based on what I already paid. I guess I'll find out in a few months when my birthday rolls around, again. Fingers crossed.

I think this is great. In 2013 you're only going to be paying 0.5% more than you would have previously. They are doing away with the sales tax (6%) and adding this fee (6.5%). According to the state's calculator, I will pay nothing to opt in (I bought a car in 2012 and paid the sales tax and four months later, on my birthday, had to pay $590 ad velorum). That more than covered the cost to opt in. They say I'll be saving $2890.00 over the next five years. Am I looking at it wrong?
