Borrowing from the Times:

Hall County Administrator Charley Nix said Tuesday he will propose new procedures to better keep track of expenditures by the county, just a day after Chairman Tom Oliver admitted authorizing payments to a consultant without board approval.

Charley, we need than a ‘proposal.’ Just stop the payments to this ‘consultant’ immediately. Once Oliver’s pet consultant isn’t being paid, it becomes a public issue. Make it public, Charley.

If Oliver wants to continue paying for this service, force Oliver to plead the case before the Commission in public.

Oliver is a public servant. He can’t have private contracts. Cut off the money right now!
