  1. “Donald says the extra day off will not affect the city budget.” This provides real insight into how this guy thinks (or fails to think). Ultimately, the taxpayers are paying for one day of productivity and services by Augusta employees and are receiving nothing but inconvenience and delays. I’d rather give a mental health day to the farmers, truck drivers, food processing plant workers, power plant workers, and first responders who kept me warm, fed, and safe during COVID.

    I wonder which of the commissioners would live in a house with a leaking roof and not fix the leaks until the house collapsed on them. First the Walton Way Law Enforcement Center, and now the Aquatic Center and Animal Shelter. Augusta’s government should skip hiring a lobbyist and hire a facilities maintenance manager who actually understands the service lives of building systems (e.g., roofs and HVAC systems) and knows how to schedule and implement inspections, preventive maintenance, and corrective maintenance. Seems like they complete a capital project and do not project future maintenance requirements and budget for their cost.

    Will anyone think the “Augusta Perks” might be illegal, as it could be abused and become the “Augusta Bribes” program? 2010 Georgia Code
    TITLE 16 – CRIMES AND OFFENSES
    CHAPTER 10 – OFFENSES AGAINST PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
    ARTICLE 1 – ABUSE OF GOVERNMENTAL OFFICE
    § 16-10-2 – Bribery
    Will it have the same transparency and accountability as the VAX Card Program?
