We stole your money to save 300 jobs (that we may cut anyway)


One week after the Lane County Commissioners voted to enact a county income tax against the voters will to save proximally 300 jobs in Lane County, Lane County commissioners due to a budgeting deadline, may still be faced with making those same cuts.
The cuts "would hurt so many vulnerable people," Lane County Commissioner Bill Dwyer said. He said he voted for the income tax because "I couldn't in good conscience stand around and let that happen. (Referring to his voting in favor of the Lane County income tax)"

Dwyer’s efforts to save those jobs may be futile due to a technicality that the county must submit a balanced budget by June 30 for the fiscal year starting July 1. The income tax itself the county enacted, would take effect July 1, and by law, within the budgeting process, the county can't assume that it will receive the income tax revenues. (Oops) in addition, there is always the chance that opponents of the tax will be able to successfully refer the income tax to the voters (again) in May.

The jobs on the chopping block is their usual list of services, to include police (detectives), domestic violence, search and rescue, mental health, women, infants and children's, Lane County animal regulation Authority and other programs cuts designed to directly have an immediate impact on the general public. you know the drill, it happens every time.

I have a suggestion....let's cut cable TV out of the prison budget, as well as gym equipment and oh, yes, the prison dentist. Even working people can't afford the dentist, with or without insurance!
I have heard jerks coming out of jail complaining about having to leave. They were getting used to hot running water, free cable TV and a warm, dry bed.
Instead of cutting people's jobs or threatening us with safety issues, focus should be on cutting the 'fat'.
(By the way.....sleepy Ted pays his asst. over $125,000 a year....more than he makes. State should cut that down!!!!)

If the county commissioners and heads of departments don’t know the basic rules for the county budget process, we have REAL financial problems and I don’t mean the lack of money. I can not believe that they were unaware that the budget needed to be balanced and submitted to the state prior to July 1. This is a smoke screen and when the smoke lifts, we will have an income tax we don’t want and the county will still be crying they don’t have enough money.
