You hit the nail on the head, AUDIT needed ASAP!
You talked about three areas where an audit is needed. May I suggest a fourth?? What happened to the Keep Augusta Beautiful equipment and resources??
An audit should be demanded.
If they have 7 million to pay someone to clean up recreation, which is a department in and of itself already in the budget, surely the cost of an audit won’t break the budget.
As I’ve said before… a few million for an audit is a small price to pay for piece of mind in this billion dollar budget.
Davis did not rent a storage unit, city taxpayers did. I want to know what I’m storing.
I wish a vote of “the people” would be held as to an audit yes or no … that would tell us all we need to know about “the people” if they are complicit or indeed good citizens.
Of course some of the commissioners don’t want an audit. Some might have to be held accountable with what would be discovered. The taxpayers of Richmond County are having to pay for this corruption so therefore, we should be able to demand an audit on all departments. Where in private business can you spend company money and not have to present a receipt? How long do you think it would be before you were fired or sent to jail?
So I don’t know but what is holding up an Audit? Who has to call one and make it an official Audit? Way overdue for sure.
If the members of the commission have nothing to hide they should all vote yes for an audit. Being as most probably would and have voted no in the past should tell us there is a snake in the wood pile. Why not put the question of an audit on the ballot for the next election? Keep stirring the pot Johnny.
