Be The Poll — County Bonding

So the Linn County Board of Supervisors is talking about floating $9.5 million in bonds to rennovate its Administrative Office Building. The feds will provide $2.2 million to fix flood damage, but an additional $9.5 million is needed for extra remodeling.

The plan includes adding a new top floor. That’s where supervisors’ offices would be located. They’d be movin’ on up to a d-lux office in the sky-y. (Sorry again, youngsters, for the confusing 70s-80s cultural reference.)

And thanks to a bill approved by the Legisalture and signed last week by Gov. Chet Culver, they can issue those bonds without a public vote. Citizens can call for a vote through “reverse referrendum,” but you’d need to collect more than 22,000 signatures. A very tall order.

But you can still vote here, no signatures required.

    Man, first the pay fiasco, now new “penthouse” offices being added with no voter approval. This board is amazingly tone deaf.

    I voted “NO” only because you don’t have a “F**K NO” choice.

    I’ve looked at the poll several times and still don’t see the “HELL no and these clowns should be voted out asap” button.
