Mayor Tim Burchett just announced on The Hubert Smith Radio Show that the County will be receiving a $330,000.00 credit card rebate. The rebate is for items purchased with the county credit card system. It involves the “E-commerce cards” that replaced the old “P-card” system. According to the Mayor, while this program has produced rebates in the past, this is the most substantial.
The Mayor then took a “shot across the bow” at Dr. McIntyre by stating that he will be recommending the money to pay down the debt and not go towards the education budget.
