To the editor:
I talk to a Bedford County Commissioner, and I will not name the person. But the commissioner told me that the City of Shelbyville school is all county. Why should these city schools be take care of by the county?
Is this why the city can go down on their taxes and the county pay more taxes?
This is not right. If the kids go to city school then the city should pay for the school. Just like other county government is doing.
What Commissioner Vick and Boutwell is talking about is go up on the county people taxes again. This is completely wrong, because the people of the county cannot affort any more taxes.
You want to look into a another matter. Look at the roads in Bedford Couny. They are getting worst. Go and drive on Squire Hall Rd, where the rock company is.
The dump truck done tore the road up and the road department know about it. They refused to stop the truck from going from the rock company to Midland Rd. That road is a 14 tons (28,000 lb) rd. There was a sign at the rock company before someone took it down.
The road department know about this because I call them. Sometime the truck will come into the cars lane or almost run off the road. What will it take to put a stop to the truck from using this part of the Squire Hall Rd? Somebody get hurt or get kill.
Will this make the road department fix the road and put a stop on this matter? Will it take a person that get hurt or kill to sue the road department, the county and the Mayor? What will the finally price be?
I am going to sell my home before the county can steal any more money
