Pike County commissioners were presented with a check Oct. 9 for $18,260 by EMA director Jimmy Totten as part of a GEMA matching grant for installation of a generator system at the public works building. The county approved and paid for the project and was reimbursed by the state for half the cost of installation.
Thank you for the $18,260 check but it is really only $3,260. Remember the BOC threw volunteer County Manager Rob Morton $15,000
for his "volunteer services." Mr. Morton was already on a contract salary with the county. No different than former commissioner Parrish Swift asking for and getting approval for the "volunteer fire chief" to have some walking around money.
Sounds like Washington DC with taxpayers money.
