  1. This Department needs to be shut down immediately! Never should have been created. These duties should go to the Marshalls Department and the Inspections Department. This Department was created by politicians to place friends in positions they were never qualified for. Commissioners please stop the bleeding of taxpayers money. Streamline Government services.

  2. I love Augusta believe this is an example of waste Fraud and Abuse/ cover up by Augusta Richmond County Government. I love Augusta have on good authority that this was a extra marriage love triangle cover up. No doubt the reporter can only write what’s in the freedom of Information records. There need to be a GBI investigation in that this happen in Chatham and Glenn County and the subjects are from Richmond County government. After this incident one of the individuals received a national security Clarence possible because of the cover can you say FBI?

    • That will never happen..Hardie Davis blatantly broke okie the law with his credit card use, subverted procurement rules and use a charity to write one person a check for doing nothing…Augusta government continually breaks the sunshine laws, nothing will ever be done about it. It’s business as usual…

  3. “His resignation paperwork states he is eligible for re-hire.” What the heck does this mean and who made this determination? Prior commenters are correct. The Code Enforcement Department needs to go. Give code enforcement to the marshal’s office. Then elect a sheriff and marshal whose egos will let them work together.

    • Agree, and pull the plug on the 50k + for tools and equipment tax payers are paying for owners and investors that own property they can not maintain. When property is reported, it should be inspected quickly, notification quickly and number of days to comply quick. If not done sent competent people to make sure it is done correctly. Bill owners of property for all the man hours spent to comply.

  4. Well, it’s refreshing, I guess, to hear Wynder taking responsibility and resigning. That’s very unusual for anyone these days. He should have done the logical thing and blamed Trump for his troubles.

  5. When are we, the taxpayers, going to finally say that we have had enough? People need to be held accountable for their actions and we need to remember what is happening in our local government and vote accordingly.
