Free Laptop computers for Muskegon County commissioners!

This will be voted on Thursday 2/3/2011 at 3:30!
 
"(Administration) Authorize the Finance &Management Services Director to Solicit Proposals for Laptop Computers for the Board of Commissioners"

Well, isn't that nice?
The county has so much EXTRA money that we're gonna buy a nifty new laptop for each commissioner!

Funny how most already have laptops and I've NEVER seen one used by a commissioner but that's not the point, is it?

We are being told "it will actually save money".

Let's see an analysis BEFORE we spend any money.

Wow, what a concept!

Contact your commissioner to support his/her free gift from the taxpayers!

Lot's of posts on the Norton Shores millage vote on M-Live

Just enter "NS" or "Norton" in the search box.

County commission today at 3:30

Not too much going on today.
Courts/Public Safety and Human Resources meet today at 3:30.
The only item of interest is this:

"HR11/02 -13 (Public Health) Authorize Public Health to Reclassify Community Nutrition Specialist (N20703) to Community Nutrition Counselor"

My question is why the need for reclassification?
I see this often and am suspicious that it is simply a way to give a raise without actually "giving a raise".

Only if our representatives know we are watching them will we have ANY power at all over them.
I'll ask at the meeting.

See you at 3:00 at Carmen's!
