Where's the Water Revenue Today, Barbara?
I attended the CivFed meeting last night and while ace chamber of commerce and county board booster "Sarasota Scott" McCaffrey was exchanging pleasantries with a VIP Democrat (her nickname is "Bambi") about their household pets, several CivFed delegates were having a serious discussion nearby about Barbara Donnellan and county water revenues. Turns out the water revenue not only swims from account to account as the result of Barbara's "borrowing" but the county also can't determine where about 13% of the water flowing into the county's water system ends up.
Whatever they are telling the bond rating agencies, it looks to me like the county's broke because of fiscal irresponsibility and lack of controls.
Thanks for your blog.
