The problem with this story is that your "commending" counties is a joke unless you know their debt load and also how much money they bring in annually. In Coffee County we consistently spend MORE money than we take in. For 3 years straight we have ended the fiscal year in the red and we borrow money to make payroll and deliver "services" until we see some tax dollars come in. Our budget is once again higher than expected revenue!!!! We are also $100 million dollars in debt (p&i)..........I'd also like to know what "quality" services you refer to that are offered by the county of Coffee. The recycling center?
