  1. I pray to God the FBI will bring in several buses and load up all these crooked Augusta politicians and take them to the federal penitentiary . From the Court House to the out house, they All need to go!!! Stand up my fellow a Augustan’s. Enough is enough. It’s our money!!!!!

  2. Stonewalling with the FOI request smells to high heavens. Any time someone stalls with such a simple request for information, it indicates something to hide. $350?? How long does it take to produce a photocopy of a paycheck?

  3. “The HR Department will effectively maintain merit based employment procedures and develop/implement innovative approaches that continuously improve personnel management and employee support services throughout the City.”

    Hiring an overqualified person into a position and then increasing that employee’s compensation is unethical at best. That action really motivated the other Administrator Level II personnel to improve their performance. Augusta-Richmond County could save a lot of money by abolishing the HR Department. There would be no impact as the mayor, commission, and judges completely ignore and bypass the department and its functions. There is great potential for a reality TV show based on the travails of the Augusta-Richmond County government. The mayor has the studio, equipment, and high-paid contractors to start production.

    • Doing away with most of the HR department is a smart business move for the city of Augusta. It will also cut out some of the good ol’ boy politics and save the taxpayers a lot of money. I’ll give you a little nugget of information my friends , The city of Augusta has a contract with ADP that handles most of the payroll services for the city of Augusta. There are other HR services that we are not currently using and pay for and other services are offered at a very cheap price we should take advantage of thru ADP. We as taxpayers are already paying ADP for a lot of services that we are not presently using. And other services that we are not paying for that could be cheaper than running an entire HR department.
