Auditor highlighting county budget problems

Hamilton County is close to another budget crisis and Auditor Dusty Rhodes is making sure the public knows about it. The county's reserve fund -- the equivalent of a savings account-- is expected to be drained nearly dry by the end of the year.

"The projected ending balance is $0.5 million, or 0.2 percent of ongoing expenditures," according to a county memo.

Rhodes, is keeping track of the dwindling balance on his Web site (note the fund balance in red on the right.)

As we noted in a sidebar to this story on the impact of the housing slump, the problem stems from a revenues falling even shorter than expected this year. This comes after the county cut just about everything it could cut to close a $35 million 2008 budget gap. The county sent a letter to department heads this week informing them of the situation.

Maybe dusty should quit giving his FRIENDS those big property '(CAUV) tax breaks' !

Since when is the Camargo Country Club a commercial farm or provider of commercial timber ?

PATHETIC 'family values' !

"Government" is fantastically in-efficient - City, County, State, Federal..
Private enterprise could cut 30% of Ham Co payroll & never miss a beat. Ford Motor (my emplorer) did this last year (to survive) & they didn't miss a beat.

Cry me a river, Dusty, Todd, Simple Simon, Pepper, etc

Let's assume "No New Taxes" and go from there, Dusty.

Only a redistribution of the corporate welfare system wealth will cure what ails us as a community and in our own lives.

Think about it. Think for yourself. Think it through.

If the wealthy continue to exploit the American working class, hoarding themselves tens of millions while we stretch our budgets until they snap and make all the needed sacrifices -- mark these words - we WILL see a Depression that will make us a vulnerable nation.

Get past your racial inclinations. Get past the idea that the GOP is your gateway to heaven. Get past believing that the prayer for riches is within your grasp - because it is only in your dreams and a rare achievement. Think of your children and grandchildren. Think of your legacy to them.

NOT!!!

Total removal and elimination of corp. welfare, as well as individual welfare in the broad sense that was launched with the "Great Society" must be implemented.

Redistribution is not an option in any case.

"Private enterprise" doesn't have massive chunks of it's budget tied up in entitlement programs and social services that are mandated by law. They can't (legally) just cut things like JFS or the patrols from the Sheriff's office.

Most county departments are stretched to the breaking point right now. They're almost all understaffed and they almost all pay well below the going rate for whatever type of employment they're engaged in.

There simply isn't anywhere else to cut.

What kind of fool would think that robbing corporations (employers) of their money would help anything?

If you take away the money from the (corporate) employers, they won't be able to employ anybody, which will cause mass layoffs. That will then cause further declination in tax revenue.

Without the wealthy, then we don't have jobs!

By the way, Camargo Club does commercially grow sod and has sections that are timbered for fine wood.

Speaking for a family that gets income from both a "for-profit" enterprise & the government - I can confidently say: government is not (and probably never will be) nearly as efficient or cost effective.
When people say Hamilton County is "stretched to the breaking point", I think >> "you don't have a clue". No offense intended.

Has anyone reading these blogs ever taken a history or economics class?

Raw, unfettered, unregulated and untaxed capitalism caused the first Great Depression and is leading us to another.

Corporate gluttons with vulgar parchute retirements and obscene salaries while holding the salries of workers at the lowest comparable rate in history and outsourcing jobs to communist nations (like prison labor) is unAmerican, unpatriotic and destructive.

Being a good corporate citizen should be a an option - it should be a mandate enforced by taxation when the corporation doesn't voluntarily (like Ben and Jerry's) share the wealth with those creating the means - the workers and the consumers.

Two men bear the burden of the County's reserve fund being so low -- Phil Heimlich (because he spent it all for Butler County), and Carl Parrott (who lost the County millions from lawsuits over his terrible behavior). They squandered millions, gave away Drake for nothing, and now others are left to pick up the pieces.

Giving tax breaks to big corporations does nothing towards putting that money back into our system for more and better jobs. What it does do is make a few rich greedy fat cat corporate elitest richer. I'm all for helping small locally owned business, but not corporations. I think taking the tax breaks away from the larger corporations and redistributing them among the needy is exactly what should happen. And when these coporations complain and threaten to leave town, let them. Then lets find out where they are going to relocate and let those citizens know what they can expect.

Anon 12:37 You are a Socialist and you'll be the first one to whine and cry when your company leaves town.
Just who do you think is "needy" in the US? The homeless? The unemployed? The uneducated?
Some of your "needy" people I see walking around are overweight and talking on cell phones. You can redistribute all you want, but at the end of the day, the corporations will take action to protect themselves.
Corporations increase profits by wisely making capital expenditures.
If you try to "tax starve" these industries, their ROIC (Return on Invested Capital) will drop like a rock and shareholders will become impatient. When that occurs, corporations cut to the bone and it's not a pretty sight. I hope you have a government job, because those will be the most secure. Government entities don't have to follow normal rules to maintain efficiency.

Cincy Capped
Your 3:30 Anon posting is a half truth at best. In actuality, the depression was caused by high margin leveraging in the stock market.
You could leverage up to 90% back then. That means you could "buy" $100 of stock for $10 cash. The small guys tried to make quick money by leveraging their working man's salary. At the first hint of a stumbling economy, when the margins were called in, the small guy didn't have the cash to cover the 90% float. They were wiped out in the first round, but the rich kept buying up the stock at the depressed price and many became ultra-wealthy.
The moral of the story is that the market should be played by only those that study their buys wisely and can afford to lose large sums of cash. Another indication that trying wealth redistribution would be temporary at best. The rich would have the majority of the country's assets in their possesion after one generation.

Its time for the Citizens of this great County, to start thinking a Metro style government. Combine all of the individual fire departments into one, The Hamilton County Metro Fire Department. Have the police departments do the same, The Hamilton County Metro Police Department, followed by the road maintenance. That will be a huge tax savings for the county and the citizens.

We then have to start weaning all of the special projects off the tax payer’s tit. Along with the social programs that are a big waste of money.
Metro style Government has worked in many other areas and its time we take a hard look at it. Louisville and Lexington Kentucky, Indianapolis Indiana is to name just a few.
The city can stay on its own, and ride around on the street car or trolley system. Its time to get the County back into the front again.

Perhaps if you were a friend of 'dusty' you could have 11 acres of residential property in Indian Hill valued at only $1,000 and pay only $12.20 in taxes ?

Or ' one acre' in Indian Hill valued the same as 11 acres in I.H. ?

County any more, least of all the

Dusty started the website so that
everyone can see the values of all

you are wrong like a wrong

If you were right you'd go to the
State Auditor, County Prosecutor
or State Tax Commissioner (pick
one) or file a taxpayer's suit in
Common Pleas Court.

You haven't and you won't. It's
easier to keep making stupid

Funny how the real farmers claim that there are only four remaining working farms in Indian Hill, yet, there are 128 properties getting tax (give-away) benefits !

When I contacted Dusty on some fishy looking values a few years ago, I found I was misreading the files on most of them. On one there was an error and the office applied an omitted tax bill.

If you want the facts, you contact the office and ask. Otherwise, you keep making stupid posts.

U.S. farmers feed the world !

Your point ?

Are you suggesting that because farmers sell crops to China that it is O.K. to sell them our manufacturing segment and the rope that hangs U.S. ?

The farm industry will not prosper for long as China is now taking U.S. trade dollars and investing them in their own farming sector. They will use U.S. electronic sales dollars to dominate the farming sector, as well !

China now carries 25% of our nations debt and billions in trade surplus !

"The voters" have elected and re-elected Dusty five times, by increasing margins the first three times and unopposed the last two.

Does this mean "Farmer Wulsin" is also going to lose?

You are making claims that Dusty is doing something illegal. If the claims are legitimate you have an obligation to take them to the proper authorities, specifically the County Prosecutor, the State Auditor or the State Tax Commissioner. Each office has authority over County Auditors
especially if they are breaking state law.

Your obvious unwillingness to even respond directly to the challenge is the best indicator that you are wrong.

It is obvious that you are clueless !

Your weak attempts to shoot the messenger have failed !

Vic Wulsin is a doctor !

We have never claimed that dusty has done anything illegal or legal, PERIOD !

Since we were provided with documents as a result of a records request, and since 'farmer blacks' financial statements were questionable regarding farm income, there is the question that there may be other like individual situations !

We can insure everyone that the auditors office is currently reexamining the (CAUV) claims !

Time will tell and the VOTERS were never informed about (CAUV) and dusty gained office because of the "FRIENDS of the JOE" scandal !

The questions are legitimate and a fair shot, PERIOD !

The bloggers have tried every possible way to remove the cloud. Their positions and interpretations have been shoot down with evidence !

The next wRong wingnut whacko move is to attempt to shoot the messenger !

Once again you have failed, XXX judge Tryintofoolyou !

PATHETIC 'family values' !

You have claimed repeatedly that Dusty is doing favors for his "friends" at the Camargo Country Club with the CAUV exemptions.

If true, it is clearly illegal. Now you say you've never said he has done anything illegal... So what is it, Pathetic???????

The Auditor's office "re-examines" the CAUV applications EVERY YEAR.
And Vic "the Trick" Wulsin's family IS getting a CAUV exemption. Being "a doctor" apparently doesn't prevent you from getting one if you ask and meet the requirements.

Oh, one more thing. Dusty's office
originally TURNED DOWN the Camargo
CAUV request. Their lawyer went to the State who overruled the local decision. See, they can do that.
Check the Ohio Revised Code.

You truly are "Pathetic".

There may be legal ways to help Friends, i.e. those attorneys that write the statutes and then become so called farmers !

That doesn't make it morally correct !

That is where the VOTERS prevail !

This has been an ongoing investigation for three-years and we are making in roads on the national level !

Hey, Pathetic!

Where are the ORC "statues"?

Is there a state sculptor?

Does statues = statutes ?

We stand corrected !

Your weak attempt to shoot the messenger has FAILED !

Where is that case regarding the Camargo Country club, LIAR !

Their record is void as being on the State maintained Forestry Program !

Perhaps there are tracks to cover, maybe as early as 04/16/08 ?

Maybe a quick fax to Columbus ?

Our photos fail to reveal any permanent tree markings !

Let's see how fast they cover their tracks !

Hey, Pathetic - you stand "corrected" on a lot more than the "statues".

Like, for example, Camargo was put on the CAUV program by the State Tax Commissioner after the Auditor turned down their request. So much for Dusty "doing favors for his friends".

A pretty important point that maybe even you can see.

Vic "the Trick" Wulsin is getting a CAUV exemption... much the same as your friend, Black. Sauce for goose is sauce for the gander.

There are no "tracks to cover" regardless of what "your photos" reveal.

Dusty's office is well known for 'fessing up whenever they screw up and then fixing the problem.

You are well known for wild and baseless charges which you can't back up with facts.

Also for hard left demagoguery.

First it was law suit now it is the state tax commissioner !

The State Tax Commissioner lacks authority to reverse a county auditor decision, but, it would not surprise us if the 'taft crony', 'culture of corruption' didn't try to tighten the thumb screw and 'torture' dusty' !

Where is the decision ?

It is certainly not in the file !

So, cite the case, LIAR !

You are 'CLUELESS' with regard to 'Wulsin', PERIOD !

619-0181-0011-00
619-0181-0021-00

Cite the plat number, LIAR !

Every 'bold endeavor' allegation has been supported with facts and your weak attempt to shoot the messenger has failed !

Hey, Pathetic.

You're just sad. Wulsin applied for CAUV this year, too bad you can't find it in your ongoing "investigations".

And the state certainly can (and often does) override a County Auditor decision. Pretty basic stuff here - the county is a creation of the state.

No one wants to "shoot" you if you are considering yourself as the "messenger". You're really just too much fun.

Fact is the last time "favors"
were done in Hamilton County's
Auditors Office were when Joe
DeCoursy was Auditor.

Dusty will welcome any "big boys"
with open arms... just as his
staff welcomed you when you first
dropped by - anonymously (using
a fake name) for your CAUV info.

Richard A. Levin is the current
State Tax Commissioner. The
Camargo Country Club forestry
exemption - over which you have
your shorts in a bunch - was
granted in the 90s by the state -
after the Camarago lawyer went to
Columbus when Dusty's office
first turned them down...way
before Mr. Levin.

Keep 'em comin', with each post
you display more ignorance.

We knew you were a wRong wingnut whacko county worker !

We entrapped you !

Seems you have been blogging while on the county dime !

Now, let's use your rants to discredit you !

"The Auditor's office "re-examines" the CAUV applications EVERY YEAR...5:30 PM, April 30, 2008"

So, if the auditors office has the legal responsibility to re-examine (CAUV) each year and the CAMARGO COUNTRY CLUB is NOT on a 'forest management program' nor is their timber connenected to a commercial farm: Then the auditor can certainly recoupe three years taxes and Mr. Levin would be the individual, NOW WOULDN'T HE !

"just as his

You are in error. Never been there, never dropped by, never used a fake name, CRONY !

Typical wRong wingnut whacko spewing the elephant dung propaganda while using their office for crony political protectionism !

Hey, Pathetic: Looks as if you've
veered into "The Twilight Zone"
with your latest.

Mr. Levin did NOT grant the
original CAUV exemption to your
Camargo Country Club. Never said
he can't order a recoupment.
Let's see if he does.

But then again, after you share
all your information and excellent
research with him - how can he do
anything else?

I can hardly wait. There's
nothing as much fun as watching a
left-wing nutjob interpreting the
law and telling public officials
how to do their job.

Who will you be "entrapping" next?

No one has granted any exemption except the Hamilton County auditors office, PERIOD !

Just because the auditors office wimped to the wRong wingnut whacho, 'culture of corruption', 'convicted taft' appointed cronies doesn't mean we should still be investing in rare-coins, NOW DOES IT !

We certainly know some, so called liberals, that sent the local G-rand O-ld P-edophiles running with their elephant dung tail tucked between the legs after their own crony judge agreed with the LAW and the legal interpretation, then told all public officials: Free Speech Prevails !

lol, lol, lol (wink, wink) !

So, let's see what the Hamilton County auditors office does ?

Let's see if the wRong wingnut whacko cronies in the auditors office do their job and recoup !

Why don't you produce that written Camargo Club (CAUV) exemption, sent down from Columbus with the State Tax Commissioners signature on it ?

Didn't think so !

Can't wait to see Annoy 4:57 PM continue to perform those 'BACK-PEDDLE', 'CIRCUS TRICKs' !

lol, lol, lol

How about that fax ?

Once again it's XXX judge Tryintofoolyou !

Or, maybe you should go back to suing the Bengals. How did that work out for you?

forward and giving them the
benefit of your knowledge.

"Pasture and barn rental" is a
real stretch. How much does Vic
"the Trick" earn from her
agricultural efforts? Hope it's
a lot because Mean Jean is going
to beat her like a big bass drum.

Vic is not receiving any (CAUV) !
