I see you are still avoiding my main point, which is that this is not a stall tactic. They are just trying to confirm an exact dollar amount. Because if you go by county accounting, it could very well turn out that four years from now that they never owed the money and then they would have to sue to get the money back. There is nothing wrong with them wanting to confirm the amount and you have obviously shown a bias against blair oaks and I'm sure you'll never admit it.
Let's stick to the real problem here, which is that the commission is costing taxpayers money that could have been prevented very easily. As a taxpayer, and a resident of this county, I have a major problem with county government wasting taxpayer money on law suits that could have been prevented with a little cooperation on their part.
JCLifer you are correct. The numbers change any time the commission wants them to change. They can't be trusted.
You keep turning this into they refuse to pay and that is not the case. If the COUNTY can't get the numbers right, how are they suppossed to trust them. You are correct about the fact Blair Oaks made a big deal about this in the past but they never had any dollar amounts to go with those complaints. They felt they were being over paid but never knew how much or an exact amount as you seem to think. Quit making them out to be the bad guys because they simply want to confirm the amount owed. The commission is the problem in this case. All they had to do is certify the amount owed and they would not do that. WHY? Probably because they still do not know an exact amount and they are guessing. The commission could have kept this out of court and saved all tax payers money but they decided not to. People should be angry with the commission not Blair Oaks.
try doing a little research before commenting on things you don't understand. Blair Oaks questioned the amount of money numerous times before taking it and was told that the amount was correct.
The question is not whether they owe money at this point, the question is how much they owe. They can not trust the county commission and their numbers since that was the part of the original problem. The commission has proven time and time again they can not be trusted and that you can not take them at their word. If you do a little research, you will see the Commission has broken it's promises and misappropriated money lately. How would you expect anyone to trust them? ANYONE that does, is foolish.
Blair Oaks will repay the money when they confirm that the amount is correct. Way to go Jim Jones & Blair Oaks R-II school board for not trusting them!
