Wayne Beyer of Pleasanton-based Beyer & Co. has issued an “unqualified opinion” of Wilson County’s fiscal year 2012 books, according to an audit report he presented during the April 8 meeting of the Wilson County Commissioners Court. This means that the county again has received a clean audit. . . .
Amazing what you can find by doing a quick search for "county budget" on this website.
So before everyone runs headlong at this magical pot of money and begs for his or her cut, think of the average joes who haven't seen a raise in a few years because of our national economy. Why should those on the public dole be any different. Granted, our public safety community deserves to be taken care of, but there are lots of other needs that need covered -- in the present and in the future. Remember the 7Ps!

If we have that much money, why can't the largest department in the county get a raise for their employees to keep them here instead of going to other neighboring counties and cities? Do you know that two cities in this county, those officers make more than our county officers? But yet our sheriff's office employees the dispatchers that are used by the three cities with departments, whom do not pay for any of those services! I think some things need to change. Give the Sheriff's Office at least $400,000 to pay the officer's better, get quailty officers, keep quality officers and make the moral better for the entire department. Someone needs to start fighting for these officers of the law that keep all of us safe, county wide. If no one will (because the Sheriff doesn't), then I hope they will rise up and demand better pay and beneifts!
