This has got to be the worst group of commissioners Harrodsburg has ever seen. Charlie Mattingly is doing nothing about our water system on Main St.

The city doesn't have to respond to a properly filed open records request? News to me.

I hear this BS over, and over and over. It is ridiculous! The police department is being attacked now. What about the cemetery before? Does any body have any idea how much Bubby Isham has spent on the most useless BS possible. Get involved people, GET INVOLVED!!! I have no doubts, you're not going to like what you see!!!

Please give specifics of what things the commissioners and mayor have done wrong. Not just your opinion, but factual evidence of wrongdoing by the duly elected officials.

Start generating tax revenue like walmart and kroger and maybe your water will get fixed. You may pay taxes, but you don't pay enough.

Think about this Mr. Rocket Scientist, who do you think pays the yearly premimums for the Insurance coverage? The more the Insurance companies have to pay out to settle these ridiculous lawsuits, the higher the premiums are. Dumbass.

That law only says that it has to be used for cemetery needs, not that what it's spent for can't be for some stupid reason. Example: Little White Tonka Truck. Having the money to spend doesn't mean that it's being spent wisely. If you want to know whats being spent and why all you have to do is ask. It's called an open records request and you have to put it in writing. It's tax payer money and you have the right to know what their doing with it.

what white tonka truck do you speak of because they did get a new dumb truck but the other one was old and needed to be replaced because if you don't update your equipment when you have funds to do so you will be in a bind when it goes down and the money is not there

I want to put this out there I'm not defending the commission but most of what you people are talking about happened before they took office they have had there work cut out for them repairing what the last bunch screwed up and it has been a long process everyone turned a blind eye to the lady bunch until the economy went south so it's the thing to do to beat up on the government but the people that work for the city have had it very hard just like the rest of the country there have been jobs lost time cut and so on you want to nit pick what money is spent but the mass majority has been spent to update things that the last group neglected if you want to gripe about the government start at the top at the federal level and than work your way down nothing is ever going to be done to everyone's liking but most is done right so no one in here has made a just claim that the current group is done wrong the post that started all if this was wrong because mattingly is not over the water and sewer he is over the street dept anes is over water a sewer no one on here gets the facts straight

Crickets.......

Perhaps it was the repeal of the "emergency response fee." You know, you have an accident and you get a bill from the city. Or maybe it was the firing of Jason Elder after a 148 count child sex indictment.

I'd really like to hear about this factual evidence too. In truth it seems like the honest answer would be "The mayor or someone on the commission fired someone in my family and now I'm mad about it."
