OPINION: WHAT THE HEY IS GOING ON?

On September 12, 2018, I wrote an article titled, “OPINION: ARE THE MARSHALL CITY COMMISSIONERS ABOUT TO VIOLATE ONE OF THEIR OWN ORDINANCES?”.

The article discussed Ordinance Section 2-12. This ordinance requires that at least 25% of the city sales taxes be spent on street maintenance. I pointed out that if the City Commissioners approved the proposed 2019 city budget without repealing Section 2-12, the City Commissioners would be violating their own ordinance.

I left town before the meeting but I understand that there was a public outcry against repealing Section 2-12 so the City Commissioners did not repeal the ordinance, but they did pass a 2019 budget that did violate Section 2-12.

So, the answer to the question above appears to be – yes, the commissioners did violate their own ordinance.

Fast forward 6 weeks.
