Stuff you need to know from 6/1/06 BOMA Meeting: Very Low Attendance for Budget!











One "cool" Fox! Most don't see the fox right
away. Same in these budget meetings! Things
aren't what they appear to be. Gotta look very
close and pay attention to the details.

Our D&A**twins don't provide any budget
details to the audience. Some on a slide screen,
but way too small to read. So only thing left to
do is ask budget questions. Like how much will
we be over the budget for this year ending 6/30?
Interim mayor's answer "don't know?"
(D&A** twins that is Alexander "joined at the
hip with Dugger.) Rumor has it about 15 to 23%
over budget come 6/30/06.
Anybody worried
about it? Nope, just let's roll on right over the
local citizens and get an approval for 2007.

Total Revenues $3,308,996.00
Total Expenditures $1, 251, 123.00
Operating Budget $2,057,873.00
Amended buget passed unanimously,
for 2006-07 fiscal year.

Road Impact Fees were discussed and 2 differ-
ent consulting firms were hired to recommend
road fees. Better late than never! But 11 or more
subdivisions haven't been CHARGED a road im-
pact fee. Current and previous mayor have
lost thousands of dollars in road impact fees
from developers. Consultant fees will be paid
out of the famous adequate facilities tax fund.

Local citizen, Aubrey Short shared with group
how in Florida a 2,000 sq. ft. house pays $12K
in adequate facilities tax. His take Nolensville
must charge impact fees to handle growth.

Question was raised about Town Hall website
and the webmaster's contract($7K) with town?
How soon contract could be cancelled? Seems
another newly formed website is determined to
take over town hall website? Board should be
very careful about a new webmaster. He should
be an impartial computer tech whose only job
is to maintain site and not promote any kind of
political agenda. Keep any political pirates out
of town hall website. Goal should be to get all
meeting minutes on site in 5 days. Also get all
agendas on well in advance of meeting. Best of
all publish budget and payroll on website.

New Nolensville Census came in around 3343
or 3400 people/residents in town. City gets
paid almost $100. per person. So it is very
important to register at town hall.

More to come as we remember some of the
more minor details of the meeting.

Keep those comments and emails coming in!

BOMA ATTENDANCE WAS TERRIBLE...LOCAL CITIZENS WILL WAKE UP AND FIND THEY PAID A VERY HIGH PRICE FOR NOT ATTENDING IMPORTANT BOMA BUDGET MEETINGS.
WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO WAKE UP 3400 PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ALL REGISTERED VOTERS??? TIME IS RUNNING OUT AND DUGGER/ALEXANDER HAVE RUN OUT OF MONEY AND IDEAS.
FOLKS WE ARE NOW IN A "FREE FALL"
MODE...HOW ARE WE GOING TO LAND?
VERY HARD WILBUR..VERY HARD.

Good observation 9:44 AM! Wilbur Wright had a big advantage...his plane was airborne for a very short time with a soft landing on a NC beach. Nolensville is already flying high without any kind of support system? And no idea of where and how to land without bankrupting the entire town. Interim mayor was asked about the future...his golden words were "I don't know..I'm not a mind reader?" Worst part is all 3400 town residents live here and no matter what will pay for all the mistakes Dugger & Alexander make. Vote for a new coach and a full time 24/7 city manager in Nov. 06.
