Meetings set for audit department

Apparently, Joe Carcello likes the Copper Cellar. The chairman to the county's Audit Committee has scheduled three meetings at the Cumberland Avenue restaurant to talk about the bidding process for internal auditing services.

You might recall that the county is looking into whether it's cheaper to hire outside help or keep Richard Walls and his crew. (I'm here to tell you keeping this in-house is not only going to be cheaper, but more convenient, particularly with the amount of mileage county commissioners get out of the office.)

Anyhoo, the meetings are in December and open to the public. I'm betting that you have to pay for your own food. Click right smack here for the list.

Dafuq is this?! They HAVE to hold the meeting at Copper Cellar?

Bullshit. They can hold it at McDonald's. Looks like I've got stuff to do that week. :-p

I should point out that the audit committee doesn't have a budget, so Carcello will be using his own money.

I know THAT, Mike. The issue I have with it is one of appearances. I'm really tired of our county government having that "good ol' boy, let's do all of our business over lunch at fancy flashy places so we look like big shots" tarnish to it.

For once - just ONCE - can these motherf*&^ers not brown-bag it or get some work done WITHOUT cramming food in their mouths or do something, ANYthing to quit looking like extras in the background at the Hazzard County Courthouse?

I don't think that's too much to ask given what county government has been like the past 5-10 years or so.
