  1. If you don’t have money for things needed in a neighborhood? Why do commissioners need 7 grand to travel? This is exactly why an audit is needed..also? Why do you need to keep hiring consultants (that you don’t ever use what you pay them for) to write things for departments? Why do you have department heads? I have never seen such mismanagement of funds in my life. You’re laid to do a damn job then do it!

  2. Augusta needs to realize that today’s children do not go outside unless their house is on fire, or their X-Box dies and they are going to their friend’s house to resume gaming. The BMX park was built for 127 local children who actually had lasting interest in that activity and are now to old to do it. Sell it. Old people actually like to go places to socialize and stay warm or cool. They are the target demographic for the community center.

  3. thank you, Commissioners Clarke and mc Knight for pushing to improve Augusta. It does not have to be complicated, just updating and renovating what is here! Thanks! And wouldn’t Pickleball courts be great!!!!
