Cookie Jar

I hope the state doesn't look to closely at the Harrison County Community Foundation Fund (aka our Cookie Jar). If we let that fund get too large it might attract the wrong kind of attention, and make the state think that we're banking the riverboat revenue. That would make it a huge target for state coffers.

I think the county should immediately start work on a five-year fiscal plan for the county to plan for large projects which can benefit ALL county residents. The first thing that comes to mind is county-wide sewage treatment. I do think its a good idea to keep the fund, but we should have documented plans for the money and use it wisely.
