Quote from: ROSS on November 14, 2014, 06:05:39 PMThe Auditor of the Budget for West Elk showed up and presented the audit during the open public meeting along with extra papers stapled together and a single paper. I felt his presentation sounded a little funny, so I went to the district office and submitted a Freedom of Information Act form requesting copies of the Auditors Report and the papers presented with it.I asked them to call me when my copies were ready and I patiently waited until today, when I had to go to Howard to Batson's to shop for a few groceries. I figured since, I was driving right by the district office I'd stop by and pick up my copy.No real surprise ---- it was not available.Why you might ask, so did I ?I was told Paula was waiting for a decision. I asked what decision?I was then told that one of the papers provided during the open meeting was marked for the School Board only. I informed the delightful lady at the front desk that all of it is public information, since it was provided at an open meeting. I politely asked her to inform Paula, that if I don't receive the public information requested I would go to the state with that fact.Think about it folks since when is tax payers business private or secret?Since when is there secrecy about the School District Budget Audit?The only thing in a public, taxpayer funded school district that is confidential is disciplinary actions except those that are reported to law enforcement and if an arrest is made, it then becomes public information, doesn't it?So what do you suppose they are trying to hide?Remember, when I requested the salary of all employees including overtime and summer pay? Did I they provide that information? No! No overtime, no summer pay! Are they not intelligent enough to read the Freedom of Information form? Or are they hiding something?I'm certain they know, I will post the audit and extra information for everyone to read and maybe they Don't want you to read the financial information concerning where your tax dollars go. Which you have every right to know!A public school district should have total transparency with the only exception being disciplinary action.Just give that some thought for a few minutes please?Do we have a secret society in Elk County? LOL

Quote from: frawin on November 18, 2014, 08:20:44 AMYou don't know if there is going to be a tax increase in Elk county or not. You are like Ross you make up crap just to stir up trouble. I own property in Elk County and I will take a tax increase if it is necessary. Nancy knows a lot more about what goes on in Elk county than you do.
Quote from: Nancy on November 18, 2014, 10:29:40 AMRoss you seem to think Elk Konnected is evil or is to be blamed for anything you disagree with. I am not ashamed of supporting the programs of any Elk county programs. I also agree with Frank we do not know if Elk County taxes will be raised.
Quote from: ROSS on November 18, 2014, 09:01:42 AMWell' why doesn't Nancy tell us what she knows if she knows so much?First I'd like to know is she an Elk Konnected FOLLOWER like her husband?Or is she ashamed to admit it?Let's hear from Nancy' Okay?
Quote from: Nancy on November 18, 2014, 01:29:37 PM What is a follower? I never said anything about KKK. Again I try to be supportive of Elk County programs and groups. It doesn' t make any difference to me whether Redcliff lives in Elk county I was asking a simple question. You don't put Redcliff down for his input about Elk County but you berate others that do not live here.
