  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

One rejects resignation

                            //                        By Matthew Kent Waynesville Daily Guide Fri Sep 18, 2009, 09:50 AM CDT 

  WAYNESVILLE — Two of the three Pulaski County Commissioners formally accepted County Treasurer Barbara Thomas’ resignation Thursday, but Eastern District Commissioner Bill Farnham rejected it, saying he didn’t have a chance to ask the county’s attorney questions.
Thomas, who informed the commission Monday she was resigning effective immediately, cited concerns that “certain public officials did not, and do not, share my same concerns and priorities for the public and county government.”
Presiding Commissioner Bill Ransdall and County Clerk Diana Linnenbringer were on the phone with the county’s legal counsel in Linnenbringer’s office Monday, but Farnham remained in the meeting room and said he thought an open discussion should have taken place. He repeated that sentiment Thursday morning to Ransdall.
“I feel like I got slighted on that,” Farnham told Ransdall.
Farnham, who was asked about the incident during a break of the meeting, said he wanted to talk to the attorney and he thought his voice was vital, being a senior member of the commission.
“I didn’t get to ask the questions to get the answers I wanted,” Farnham said.
When asked what questions he hoped to ask, Farnham declined to say.
Ransdall and Western District Commissioner Rick Zweerink accepted Thomas’ resignation Thursday morning. Thomas served as County Treasurer for nearly seven years in Pulaski County and said her future plans include working with her husband, who is an attorney, in his practice.
Ransdall was handed a letter Thursday morning from the chair of the Pulaski County Republican Committee, Michael Rouse, regarding a nomination for Thomas’ vacant seat. That individual was identified as Sue Rapone, according to the letter.
The vacancy will have to be filled by Gov. Jay Nixon, according to state law, and Ransdall said he called Nixon’s office requesting it be filled as soon as possible.
“My call was urgent,” Ransdall said.
He had also asked the process be moved as “quick as possible due to the type of vacancy it is” and Ransdall said  he was assured it would be. He would not try to influence the process in any way possible in Jefferson City.
“I will not mess with that,” he said. “I can assure you that.”
Ransdall said there have been two people within the Pulaski County Courthouse seeking the position, in addition to other individuals in the county seeking it as well. Names have to be recommended through the Democratic and Republican committees, according to Ransdall, in order for the seat to be filled. State law also allows the County Commission to appoint someone an interim treasurer, but that is unlikely to occur, he said.
Questions were raised earlier this week on how the county would proceed with the signing of checks, but the Commission signed a temporary resolution Monday authorizing Zweerink and/or Farnham to co-sign any and all county checks. Those signatures will be in addition to Ransdall’s and Linnenbringer’s, according to the resolution, which will be in effect until the governor fills the seat.
At Thursday’s meeting, the Commission approved an estimated $2,400 to be spent on an audit from McBridge, Lock and Associates, a firm based in Kansas City, after Ransdall said he had received requests from people seeking the position to do so. Ransdall said it would give the county “a peace of mind” and didn’t think there was anything wrong within the county.
Ransdall also had questions of his own Thursday and wondered whether the county is authorized to deposit money. He said that’s something he’d have to ask the auditors.
“I’m not real sure on that,” Ransdall said after the meeting.
Ransdall was asked during the meeting whether there could be a possibility of a cash flow problem and he said he didn’t think so.
The next County Commission meeting is at 9 a.m. Monday in the Pulaski County Courthouse.
