Politicians Approve Slush Fund

Here is the proof we don't know what we will get with this $40 million yearly TAX. The listed projects are just teasers for this bait-and-switch scheme. They can be removed from the list after the election. That means no guarantee to taxpayers at all. The money can all be spent on projects unrelated to drainage, like welfare handouts, pay raises, and pensions.

from the 8/20/14 Gazette:

.../Kevin Walker, a consultant to the task force, said that providing a project list with Tuesday's resolution does not mean it can't be changed. He said the task force has made room for projects to "come on and go off the list," but having each municipality submit its proposed projects will help move the work along./
