There is little doubt the commissioners did this to stall until AFTER the elections. However I agree with Judge Fouse That the county is within their rights to appeal. It just sucks, (doesn’t it Mr Betters), when people cost other people money for their own personal gain!

Small towns, small incomes, vulnerable citizens and politics. A guy with a million dollars or so to invest and have his way is a serious thing.
