Someone please tell Mark Seabrook that an "apology after the fact" is going to quite effectively "set well with me" when it arrives from Seabrook's and Steve Bush's non-housetrained Floyd County Health Department.
Meanwhile, here is tonight's Twitter line:
@NAT_ChrisM (Chris Morris): Floyd County Commissioners give city officials a piece of their mind!
Roger: And a whole city yawns.
Bluegill: At least we know it didn't take long.
Roger: The half-life of a microdot on a flea's scrotum.
In fact, this same flea's pathetic athletic supporter is the approximate location of the world's smallest violin player, currently on track to resin up the bow and let loose with a funereal dirge for the county's biggest political whiner.
Frustrations aired before Durgee Road work approved in New Albany; Railroad crossing to close, road to be paved
NEW ALBANY — The Floyd County Commissioners approved the city’s request to close an existing railroad crossing and pave a section of Durgee Road Tuesday, but not without sharing a bit of frustration with John Rosenbarger, director of public facilities projects for New Albany ...
... Rosenbarger apologized to the commissioners prior to his presentation.
“We have done a very poor job communicating with you about this project,” Rosenbarger told the commissioners. “I apologize for that. We have not done our due diligence when it comes to communicating with the county.”
While Commissioners Steve Bush and Mark Seabrook appreciated the apology, they took offense to the city moving ahead with the project without their inclusion.
“It seems like a good project that will benefit both the city and county,” Bush said. “But this seems to be the theme of the city when it comes to communicating with the county. It’s a little ridiculous in my opinion. If this was the first time something like this had happened that would be one thing, but it’s not” ...
... “Thank you for your apology, but an apology after the fact doesn’t set well with me,” Seabrook said. “I think it’s a good project and I think it helps businesses. But I feel like we have been run over roughshod through this whole thing. It comes across as arrogance that you don’t need county approval on anything. I just wish there was better communication and I feel like we have tried. This stuff has got to stop and it has got to stop tonight.”
