I sent an E-mail to all commissioners and Mr. Eby with a carbon copy going to both WWAY & WECT asking them to explain to me as a vehicle owner why is it my responsibility to pay for others to go to the beach. Jason Thompson was first to respond in his usual short manner. I had to reply to him to ask for clarification as to if he supported this measure and if the citizens would get to vote on it or if it would only be the commissioners. He said he doesn't support it and only commissioners would get to vote. Then Brian Berger responded and stated he was about 95% opposed to the additional tax but wants to hear from both sides before locking in against it. Mr. Eby also responded with documentation showing county commissioners had the power to implement this tax. Commissioners Ted Davis, Rick Catlin and Jonathan Barfield haven't responded yet.
Unless you want to pay for others to go to the beach, call or e-mail each commissioner.
