First thing I wanna talk about is the Texas Constitutional Amendment that appears on the Ballot as Proposition #4. If you are against paying a State Income Tax, you need to vote FOR the Proposition. If you wanna read it and become totally confused, go ahead but, I ain’t voting in favor of a State Income Tax….yes, we have no bananas.
We got 3.5 inches of rain last Wednesday and 1.8 inches Thursday night. Since we are planning a paving project on Fish Hatchery Road and need to have it completed before cool weather sets in, I am taking credit for the rain. It may be a little sloppy out there for a few days but, hang with us and it will be over soon.
Our brand new tractor literally threw a shoe this past week. Had to have a rear wheel removed and replaced because the lug nuts (no, not Pete Clawson and Richard Wilkerson) weren’t torqued properly and these items are essential to the operation of the equipment. Keeps the tire from wobbling when you drive down the road. All shredding has been put on hold for a while.
I sure hope that Governor Abbot reads this cause it’s been six months since the sale of the TxDOT property was approved and he still ain’t signed the Deed. I know he is a busy man but, I also know that he has to have a flunkie that hands him stuff and says “sign this”. Ridiculous. The delay is throwing a wrench in my gears. Someone send him a copy of this and tell him that he has lost a fan. He can kiss my goat smellin foot.
If you are experiencing problems callin my office, or anywhere in the Count Building, we are having major problems with our phone system. It is unknown when the problem will be fixed so call my cell phone (210) 244-3413 if your can’t get through to the office. If I don’t recognize the number, I ain’t answering so, leave me a message and I’ll call you back.
Right now, the County cash on hand balance is sitting at over $14.62 million. This is $2.03 million more than October 1 last year. Seems we are doing something right…probly cause of the ever so efficient Financial Investment committee headed by our Treasurer Debbie Southwell and her ace, top notch crew. Even though we will probly use some of this for the new construction, it’s good to be in a position where we have it available for use.
Learned that Medina County won a lawsuit recently……right. We just can’t tell you the details. Ranks right up there with ocean front property in New Mexico (Arizona has been used too much) and water fountains in Hell.
Only 57 days till CHRISTmas so remember, no lights, no trees, no decorations until December 1st. Was pointed out to me the other day that I had lights up already….nope….I left them up last year and my lawyer said that was an exception to the rule…so you sue me, I win the lawsuit, then I pay you. (See above paragraph.)
