How about the Commissioners save the $262,900 and look for the grants themselves. They them could use it towards something more useful. Do we really need all the solicitors/ attorneys at $100-$110 an hour? When the county already has one at $48,000 a year plus what they make at their law practice. Seems like alot of wasteful spending. Maybe the reason they need all these people and companies is so when the weather gets nice they came go play golf at the county's golf course. They probably call their golf outings business meetings though.
