Letter: Money should go to road repair, not jobs

The County Council voted to take $276,514 from the road paving fund to restore several positions that were eliminated by a previous council. I’ll say that again, from the road paving fund. This one of the dumbest actions I have seen in Madison County politics.

Does anyone out there have a road or a street that needs paving? Surely the people of the county cannot be in favor of this mismanagement of taxpayers’ dollars. This is another example of county officials thinking their function is to hire people instead of using as few people as possible to accomplish a task.

This action does away with the need for a wheel tax because our council does not properly use the money that is in the road repair budget.
