BOCC approves taxing resolutions

There was also debate about road improvements, but along two planes.

Yeager said an MSBU would not be his preferred method of raising money for road paving. He has long championed an increase to the gas tax the county collects.

“That way everybody pays,” Yeager said.

Bryan said she would like to know the background of prior road paving projects, but had been denied that public information by Commissioner Carmen McLemore when she requested it from county staff.

At the time, McLemore said it was a waste of staff time and told Bryan outright she would not get the information.

She said the BOCC needs to understand where road bond money was spent in the past to fully understand the priorities of the present and future.

“We have no plan, no priorities,” Bryan said. “We need to have a plan of action.”
