County Council's priorities mixed up

Beaufort County Council works hard on pet projects while other projects are ignored. For example, seven months have elapsed since siphoning of library funds ($590,000 in the past two years) was discovered. The county's Finance Committee refuses to close loopholes which permit this to continue. And four months have elapsed since errors by the Finance Committee chairman derailed the promised partial restoration of library hours. It has been years since the discovery of $2 million in general fund money going to the airport. Repeated requests for cures have been stalled by the Finance Committee.
