public works Dept. every one pays the same assessment for garbage why do 3 sites open 2-5 on Sunday and 10 sites do not? are these sites &people better then the rest of us some districts have none open on Sunday. this is posted on their web. site at public Works. lets treat every one the same if you charge us the same!!!


So, the former 'economic director' retired and is now still on the payroll as a 'consultant.'

Sounds too good to be true ... for him!

With the fiascos relating to the catalyst site, one would believe a more effective person would be easily found.


If idiot's could fly the Suwannee County Commission meeting room would be an airport. Complete with air traffic control, runway lighting and rescue, for the often, crash and burn out of control Commissioner's. Pilot training by Randy Harris, he said it's my money and I want it now.


I am livid with the tax appraisers office. The only way to apply for tax exemption is to come in the office which makes it almost impossible unless you take the day off of work! Who made that rule up?
