Property Assessor Ballard Can’t Handle The Work

On today’s County Commission agenda an item was placed on the Consent Agenda. Being placed on the Consent Agenda means no discussion, no question and is expected to pass at next weeks Commission meeting.

Here is the item, R-12-8-801 Consideration of a Resolution of the Commission of Knox County, Tennessee approving contracts with Kaley & Tuck Real Estate Appraisers, Donald White & Associates, LLC, Butler Appraisal Group, LLC and the Miller Company for real estate appraisals on an as needed basis.

While Ballard talks about all these “certified” appraisers and the Assessor in waiting Jim Weaver being on staff. Obviously this group can’t appraise or they wouldn’t need these appraisers on an as needed basis. If Knox County Government needs appraisals, then Ballard’s team should do it, since he has supposedly placed certified people.

Ballard’s team of his personal assistant Betty Lane, the Assessor in Waiting Jim Weaver and Ballard sat through two hours of the Commission Work Session while being paid by the taxpayers doing absolutely nothing. Evidently, Ballard must be escorted and baby sat in order to appear at a meeting two floors below the Assessors office.

    Did any of the commissioners ask himm why he needed the services of appraisers when his office 'supposedly' has them on staff?

  3. NO, the Commissioners put the item on the Consent Agenda that means no discussion, question was to take place.

    You did say that and I read right over it.

    Nice of the commissioners to just green light it without questions being asked?

    We'll well well, the three stooges are at it again… Old Betty and Uncle Phil with Moe, I mean Slim Jim if this isn't a dark day in the second floor playhouse. This crew plays property assessment and doesn't have the knowledge to gt the job done. The republican clubs should pass the hat again to donate to Uncle Phil and his campaign debt. The blue plate special at Calhouns to pay off this morons debt for promises made and promises kept. Same old tricks same old players same Old Betty. What's next a cake walk on the second floor or a tomatoe festival out on the first floor garden. What a bunch of looser's. Reminds me of the commercial “I've fallen and I can't get up” help me somebody, Ive got too many politicians children on the payroll and the Internet can't teach them what to do. Phil you have fallen flat on your face right on top of Old Betty, certified Slim Jim just laughs at the sight of failed success. The days are counting down to uncle Phil's retirement are numbered my my my Old Betty what you gonna do then, I heard Avon needs a few good door knockers maybe you can pull the wrinkles back and paint on a new face, the one we are used to needs a lift.
