Is the county “hiding” expenses on the West Jackson EMS station? Is it improperly using SPLOST money?
At the request of commissioner Chas Hardy, the Jackson County Board of Commissioners will meet Monday night at 6:30 at the courthouse to discuss allegations made by chairman Tom Crow and member Dwain Smith in a series of newspaper ads. Crow is also behind a suit filed by three citizens alleging misuse of SPLOST funds.
At a board of commissioners meeting last month, Hardy questioned a newspaper ad purchased by Smith and Crow alleging that someone in county government is “hiding money being spent.” This led Hardy to call for a meeting with all of the information to be presented.
The meeting will also address concerns related to a lawsuit about the EMS station in West Jackson and the use of SPLOST money.
