It would now appear that this success has emboldened Mr. Davis into taking an even more draconian move. On the agenda for next Monday's Finance Committee meeting, there is a little item that should be of interest to not only the School District but the taxpayers of BC. Item "B" suggests a new "Ordinance providing for the allocation of revenues generated by the Berkeley/Williamsburg Joint Industrial and Business Park;" and the complete repeal of "Ordinance No. 96-1-2, as amended, in its entirety; and repealing all Resolutions pertaining to the allocation of revenues generated by the Joint Industrial and Business Park in the entirety." These are Mr. Davis' words, not ours.
Being as history has proven that Mr. Davis, when given the opportunity, will not hesitate to take revenue earmarked for the schools and use these monies to his own benefit, why would the School District stand silently by and allow yet another theft to take place? To date, the School District has lost multi MILLIONS of dollars from the Mount Holly FILOT. If Mr. Davis is allowed to write his own ticket with the FILOT derived from the entire county, does anyone think the division will be fairer to the School District than that of Mount Holly?
HOLD EVERYTHING!!! What are we thinking? There's no problem here, no matter how much money Mr. Davis steals from the School District. The School District will simply find a way to raise our taxes to recoup the shortfall. What the hey, float some bonds, raise the millage. There's nothing happening here, Folks, just move along.
