TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY OFFICIALS CUFFED DURING MEETING RUCKUS TODAY!!!
Jackson County property tax bills were mailed today as the discussion at the courthouse to limit the damage to residents reached a fever pitch.
Here's what we can share from the Board of Equalization meeting today . . .
TWO BOE OFFICIALS WERE HANDCUFFED & ESCORTED FROM THE ROOM BY JACKSON COUNTY SHERIFFS AS THE MEETING TURNED INTO A SCREAMING MATCH!!!
The arrest was a result of a discussion to halt the bills from going out today and vote on the 14.9% cap on increases.
As always, media was warned to stay quiet regarding the hot mess and the official was not arrested but instead detained for a temporary time out and cooling down period.
One insider comments on the situation overall:
"This is the worst we've seen under the Frank White Administration. He is operating like an absolute dictator and it's obvious that mentality is impacting everyone in the building. The county has become worse than a circus and if we've got public officials silenced. We know this government body doesn't care at all about freedom of speech."
This story continues to evolve and we're expecting to see the victim of the arrest reach out to police.
Meanwhile, while this isn't the first time that Sheriffs have had to usher public officials at the courthouse . . . This episode is indicative of growing frustration not only from taxpayers but also elected officials at the leadership of the current Administration.
