  • 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.

DoD To Send Notices Of Layoffs This Week[/size]By William H. McMichael, Staff writer
Hundreds of thousands of government and contract employees of the Army and Marine Corps will begin learning this week whether they could be laid off in early 2008 because Congress has failed to pass a war spending bill for the new fiscal year, the Defense Department says.
That’s because DoD is paying for the war out of the services’ baseline budget operations and maintenance accounts, which also cover a large portion of base operations and civilian employee salaries.
The notices — "It’s an informational letter, not a furlough notice" — will be sent to Army and Marine Corps installations and labor unions Tuesday night, said a defense official who asked not to be named. Potentially affected individuals will be notified beginning Wednesday.
In a Dec. 7 letter to Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England said that Army O&M accounts would be depleted by about mid-February and Marine Corps accounts by about mid-March. Those time frames are when about 100,000 civilian employees who are paid from those accounts would be "subject to furlough," he said.
While the layoffs in each service could be separated by a month, this week’s letters are going out to workers in both services, according to Army Lt. Col. Les Melnyk, a Pentagon spokesman.
An additional 100,000 Army and Marine Corps contract employees could also be affected by the impasse, officials say. Notification will begin at the Army and Marine Corps level and be passed by installation commands to individual bases. It will then be up to base commanders to decide which workers are essential and which are not, and to notify those workers’ companies, which will in turn be responsible for notifying them of possible layoffs, Melnyk said.
The only workers who will not get a letter will be those considered "mission-essential," Melnyk said. Examples, he said, include those working in the safety and medical fields, and those in support functions that directly affect troops at war. As a result, well more than 200,000 workers will be getting letters this week, he said. Officials, he said, are still trying to identify which employees are mission-essential.
About 665,000 civilians — not including contractors — work for DoD, Melnyk said.
Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell said Nov. 20 the early notifications are needed because in some cases, a 60-day notification is required in order to furlough a government employee for 30 days. Contracts can be cancelled or stopped at any time, he said, but contractors have to comply with DoD regulations by providing the 60 days’ notice to their workers.
Specific furlough notices, if required, will go out in mid-January, England said.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates first broached the likelihood of mass layoffs during a Nov. 15 Pentagon press conference. Despite the "misperception" that DoD can move money around at will in order to fund the troops in the field, he said, Congress limits such movements to $3.7 million under general transfer authority. That amount, he said, covers "a little over one week’s worth of war expenses."
Congressional leaders counter that plenty of war funding has been offered to the administration, in the form of a $50 billion "bridge fund," but have attached requirements to bring all U.S. troops home from Iraq by Christmas 2008, which President Bush has threatened to veto.

Again, wonderful congressional support of our troops, the war effort, and of course the DOD civilians that make it all happen.  I am NOT a DOD civilian so this statement is not a self fulfilliing prophecy for me.  Congress, including the much "beloved" Ike need to remember what they did to the economy here, if the furlough happens.
