Newton County Judge Speaks on Prison Refurbishing

We spoke with Newton County Judge Kenneth Weeks on Friday, July 17, concerning the refurbishing of the Newton County Correctional Facility.  Judge Weeks wants the citizens to know that he will host a Question and Answer Session this Wednesday on the County Facebook Page for anyone that has questions regarding this matter.  The Question and Answer Session will begin at noon.

Newton County News:  Will the refurbishing of the prison cost residents of Newton County?

Judge Weeks:  Yes, a small portion based on the current tax rate in Newton County.  Newton County tax rates are very low when compared to other county’s rates.

    You just raised our TAXES. Why should we have to pay for it? Enough with raising TAXES. You just gave yourself a raise and new pickup trucks how much more do you need? We are not rich people, we make a living. We pay enough!!! This should be done with an election not by 4 or 5 people. WE SHOULD BE THE ONES TO SAY YES OR NO.
