Kirby is absent, Billy doesn’t write his amendments and we have a FY 2018 budget!

County Executive contender, #kirbydelauter, is soaking up the rays and couldn’t be with us this evening. Kind of makes you wonder if he will run out of town during important CE meetings. Because it doesn’t get much more serious than voting on the budget.

Our evening starts off very nicely, recognizing the fine teachers in our county.

Billy is in fine form tonight. And by fine we mean awful. He jumps down the throat of the Public Works representative for not investigating blasting for removing rock for a fire station. Perplexed, the representative says there isn’t much rock to be removed and most of the reason this project is over budget is because they switched the doors on the building. Billy won’t let it go, “Didn’t you investigate blasting?” Not the issue, but he thinks it is, so I guess everyone has to entertain his fantasies? Billy is the only one that votes against this budget adjustment.

Billy votes against the minutes. There’s two public hearings for block amendments. Both pass 6-0-1(for the absent contender for County Executive).

The Solar Panel bill is finally up for a vote. And even though Billy tried to amend it last go around, he is undeterred! First two amendments fail. Jessica asks him if he really meant to put forth the third one, to which he replies, “Good catch! I didn’t write them.” That’s right he didn’t write the amendments that he is spewing forth! (Take our poll to speculate wildly on who does!) All the rest of his amendments to this bill fail.

So very stupid!

Billy isn’t done talking. Says that the solar panels at Mt. St. Mary’s and Ft. Detrick would not be allowed if this bill were in place. To which M.C. says is simply not true! He continues to try and argue his very wrong point, but let’s jump to the end. We now have a solar panel bill, so Central Pennsylvania will have to take down all those billboards thanking Frederick County for killing solar.

An amendment to restrict the timeline for zoning restrictions during an election year is made, so it will go back to a public hearing. Tony is not a fan of this bill. Says it assumes that people aren’t good-natured and that we should just shut the government down the July before an election. Of course the council doesn’t do anything else! And great Zeus’ beard, Tony, don’t pretend that you don’t know why this is being proposed! Just take a look at the Oakdale and Urbana school districts, people! Billy tries to add some more amendments. Says he really likes the idea of removing two laws for every one that is passed. (Maybe Billy should check the news to see how very bigly bad Trump is doing these days.) All fail, again.

Look what you did to Mr. Sniffles!

 

The hearing will be held on June 6th.

Dog tethering law passes, after more failed amendments from Billy. Billy wants us to know that IF he were a dog he would prefer to be leashed outside for ten hours than to be kept in a kennel all day. Just FYI! Tony talks about his free-range dogs and doesn’t know how it can be enforced. Jerry tells them that Animal Control says they don’t see a problem with enforcement so he’d rather take their word on the issue. Passes 4-2.

We are in and out of the rest of the meeting but we can tell you this:

The Budget has passed!!! So now we get to take a collective sigh of relief !

One thought on “Kirby is absent, Billy doesn’t write his amendments and we have a FY 2018 budget!

  1. “Jerry tells them that Animal Control says they don’t see a problem with enforcement so he’d rather take their word on the issue.”

    “Says he really likes the idea of removing two laws for every one that is passed.”

    “Good catch! I didn’t write them.”

    Dear Billy and Tony,

    Governing by anecdote, governing by slogan, and governing by plagiarism is not actually governing. You are far too stupid to be mendacious and I actually feel bad for both of you.
