IRS, Insurance Issues Resurface at Jonesboro

IRS, Insurance

Insurance and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issues have resurfaced for the Town of Jonesboro, according to the town’s controversial mayor Leslie Thompson. At last night’s meeting of the Board of Aldermen, he said “there are IRS and insurance situations that we need to be concerned about.” He added that, “there are payments that we need to make to bring those insurances current.”

An IRS agent paid a visit to the town.

“The IRS representative came and spoke with Melba, and I think David and me last week,” Thompson said. “We’re having to get together some papers – I think it’s 941,” he added.

The IRS Form 941 (Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return) is a form that reports the total amount of tax withheld during the quarter. As an employer, the town is responsible for withholding federal income tax and other payroll taxes from each employee’s paycheck and remitting it to the IRS quarterly.

This has been an ongoing problem for years with the town.

According to the town’s audits and the monthly reports from the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), the town has habitually been late with tax and insurance payments, resulting in dropped medical coverage for employees and conflict with the IRS.

Thompson said he would be also talking soon with insurance agents about those issues and would report back to the board.

Alderman Attempts to Interfere with Police Chief’s Authority

Another significant development last night was an apparent attempt by District D’s Devin Flowers to interfere with the authority and duties of Jonesboro’s Police Chief, Wes Horton.

At the beginning of the meeting, Flowers had added to the agenda an item “police department.” When that item came up, Flowers questioned the shift assignment of one of Horton’s officers.

Horton said that no patrol officer is specifically assigned any particular shift and assignments were made as requirements dictate.

City Attorney Douglas Stokes backed up Horton’s authority.

“The Chief of Police – he has the authority,” said Stokes.

“It’s gonna cause him (the officer) a problem,” Flowers replied.

CFO Contract Extended

As we had reported yesterday, the CFO contract between the town, the Louisiana Legislative Auditor (LLA), and Edwards, Wade & Perry (EW&P) was extended for “30 to sixty days” to “assist” in the preparation of the annual audit that is due by 12/31/2011.

From the new contract:

A. The TOWN is fully responsible for the audit; however, the CFO will make herself available to the TOWN’s auditor to discuss the TOWN’s accounting functions, controls, etc., as requested, and assist TOWN staff in preparing necessary documents/schedules for the TOWN’s June 30, 2011 audit; and
B. Provide ongoing training and general follow-up for the scope of services, which were enumerated as 1-24, in the April 2011 contract…

See here the document.

Thompson said he wanted to insert into part A of the agreement “and approved by the mayor” in two places, so that he could maintain control of the process.

It is unclear if an audit can be called “independent” if the management of the governmental entity tries to control the process.

District B’s Renee Stringer brought up a letter from the mayor to Wade where he said she had not properly instructed the town clerk on how to generate some of the monthly reports. Thompson said the issue had been addressed and was no longer a problem.

See here the letter.

Budget Ordinance Amendment Tabled

Also last night, a budget amendment ordinance was tabled, because, according to Thompson, some additional issues needed to be addressed.

When writing today’s news story, we noticed that the budget ordinance that was tabled last night differed slightly from the one introduced at the 11/8/2011 meeting of the board.

Last night’s version had about $11 thousand more in revenue and expenditures, and it also whacked the Jonesboro Police Department’s (JPD) budget another $8 thousand. That’s on top of the $67 thousand cut to the JPD that was in the original version of the budget amendment.

See here the documents:

Budget Ordinance #706 (as introduced 11/8/2011)
Budget Ordinance #706 (as tabled 12/13/2011)
See here the adjusted budget spreadsheet.

Thompson said last night that he was an expert on how to amend the town’s budget. “We’ve been through ninety days of court with that,” he said. “We gonna do it according to the law,” Thompson added.

During the public comment period for the ordinance, Police Chief Wesley Horton had questioned the accuracy of the figures and suggested that the process be delayed until the numbers were correct.

“Animal control spent $900 on telephone, and there hasn’t been anyone there,” said Horton. “I don’t know how we can propose an amendment when we don’t have accurate figures,” he added.

Policies and Procedures

Two policies were reviewed and adopted.

Financial Reporting Policy
Bank Reconciliation Policy

Animal Control

District B’s Stringer made an impassioned plea to the rest of the council and the mayor to reopen the animal control shelter which was closed last summer when the new budget was adopted.

No action was taken.

    Some solutions present themselves. Just fire the officer who doesn’t understand officers are there to suit the PD’s needs and not the other way around and save way more than the $8,000 in cuts to the PD that the mayor has sneaked into the budget.

    OMG that letter from Thompson to Wade was SO terribly written, full of grammatical mistakes, poorly chosen words and totally awkward phrasing. Seriously, did he even finish high school?

    That was BAD, BAD, BAD. I hope he’s not writing letters of recommendation for college bound kids.

    How is this going to end? I’m so sorry this is happening. I’ve only been following this site for a matter of days, had no idea there were such issues, but I think i’m caught up now…thanks.

      It’s true he speaks and writes in a curious double talk. That technique tends to lose the answer to a simple question in verbage so you are led to believe he either doesnot understand the question, is avoiding a direct answer, or is stringing words together thinking he sounds intelligent. Tiresome indeed. Any letters signed by him not containing this double talk are written by someone else.

      The Mayor has a degree……but just cause you get a sheepskin, does not make you able to write.

      Ms. Simmon’s letter in the paper was well written and easy to understand. Maybe she can proof his work and coach him in writing.

    All of this information needs to be forwarded to Baton Rouge so they can see that all of what Thompson has been feeding them is hogwash. None of what he says is the truth.

With this last action I do think they might be seeing the light, but one more visit and 3 more lies will placate the elderly gentlemen yet again. Pitiful! I was told one gentleman tried to get an appointment to go to Baton Rouge to see the Attorney General but was told to wait until the appropriate time. When is the appropriate time? This has gone on long enough, the caravan is about to come together and Baton Rouge is about to see what some people here are tired of, James Roy Fannin, Bob Kostelka, D.A. Stewart, Thompson and crew.
            Yes, it is going to happen.

      So your brother, Devin, thought the town council had the authority to determine a town employees work shift? Interesting that he thought one police officer’s shift was business the town council needed to address at the monthly public meeting. Why did the Town Attorney have to explain to Devin that it was not the council’s authority regarding work shifts for the police? Just trying to understand why he would add this item to the agenda since the council has no authority to act.

      Is your brother the one eating sunflower seeds at the table during the meetings?

      Was your brother the one who told D J Allen that he was not welcome at the TOJ meetings since he did not live in Jonesboro?

        He makes the council meeting causal ….very causal dress and eating a snake while meeting is going on.

        He does not want to allow the tax payers to attend the meetings if they do not live in the town….can bus in folks for rallys and meetings, just not to the town council meetings. Especially, if you speak up and actually know how to read and UNDERSTAND a working budget.

        He thinks employees to pick their own work shifts.

        There certainly would all be change…..not change for the good of Jonesboro.

      Well, I would like to know your thoughts about “change” the mayor has brought about at TJ

      Change to do as he pleases.
      Change to disobey all the quidelines for managing an entity.
      Change for corrupting the TJ financially.
      Change for unaccountability
      Change that brings “disrespect” to an office from a mayor.
      Change that lets people that he chooses get away without paying their bills to the TJ.
      Change that sinks the TJ deeper into the abyss.

      I could go on and on, but you get the message. Change, but in the wrong direction.

      Please address all of the above.

    • Augusta Duffer Says:

      The only type of change your brother and his band of idiots have brought to Jonesboro are the changes we are going to spend years trying to correct. He was only elected to give Leslie someone to back him up no matter how stupid he is. Your spelling is proof of this also. If he wants respect, tell him to start taking his job seriously and stand against the mayor for once.

    Janice Simmons’s letter last week to the Editor in the Jackson Independent mentions the Town of Jonesboro Cemetery.

    Walter, would you research the TOJ expenses and income associated with the Cemetery?

    How does one obtain a plot in the Cemetery?

    Is there a fee charged by the TOJ when a burial occurs?

    Is it against the law to allow non-whites to be buried in the Town of Jonesboro Cemetery? She implies that is the case.

    Never knew that this old cemetery might be a sore spot or creates an issue with anyone until reading Janice’s letter last week.

    I quote her letter “….I would certainly want to know why an all white cemetery in the heart of the town is being maintained with tax payers dollars and by city employees who will never be allowed be interred there?…”

    Having ancestors buried there, my family would be happy to donate, time and money, annually. Especially if needed to maintain this historical cemetery. I am certain other folks would do the same….just as long as there is no misuse of the donated funds.

    I think the financial budget woes in the TOJ has not been created by the cemetery….but if somebody needs to be layed off to save some money by stopping the mowing, etc. at the cemetery, let’s move forward with a non profit and the TOJ can donate the land and be relieved of the financial responsibility of the cemetery.

    Thanks!

    In response to the allegations that the Jonesboro Cemetary is funded or maintained using Town of Jonesboro money and the reference to it being a “white cemetary”. If it is being funded by the town of jonesboro, I cant help but notice that the Mayor of Jonesboro is a “non-white” ( as you referr to it ). So, is the cemetary really a racial issue.

    That probably is correct about the Town of Jonesboro not “owning” the Jonesboro Cemetery. According to the best records available, the Macedonia Baptist Church was located on the hill where the cemetery is now located, and Joseph Jones set aside four square acres for the chuch and a cemetery.
    There was not even a Town of Jonesboro as such until 1903, and nobody has been able to locate records to show that the town ever purchased the property for that purpose. Some of the adjacent landowners, such as the Beasley family, sold portions of that area which they owned to individuals for cemetery plots.
    It has been traditional for the Town of Jonesboro to keep that area up, regardless of any legal responsibility, and they have been assisted by individuals who donate for that purpose. Do not know the history of the cemetery on the east side of town, who owns it or who keeps it up.
    I would assume that the $13,400 budgeted for upkeep includes both of these, plus any additional ones within the town limits that are not privately or individually owned. Believe a funeral home owns Gayla Traina and Garden of Memories, and McDonald Baptist Church owns the McDonald Cemetery land, and there may be others.
    While that amount does seem rather exorbitant for maintenance of just two cemeteries, it pales by comparison with the sharp increase in mayoral salary, maintenance of proper bookkeeping records, and legal fees that have been incurred during the present administration.

    Aryan Nations – January 14th 2012
    Seek Justice and Bring Facts for Jonesboro Taxpayers

    When Aryan Nations was contacted and asked if we could come to town to oppose the NAACP who was called in by Mayor Leslie Thompson because he is unable to account for nearly $400,000 of taxpayer money and is crying “RACISM” rather than face the music, we applied for a permit to counter the NAACP and the Mayor on January 14th. The Jackson Parish Police Jury denied all parties their first amendment right to assemble.

    Regardless: Aryan Nations knows what the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution says, and we will be in Jonesboro at 500 E. Street on January 14th just before noon. We won’t be bringing thousands like the NAACP promised to do. We don’t need to do that. We do believe that the White population of Jonesboro wants to, and needs to, see our presence and hear our message. We are not coming to infringe upon anyone’s constitutional rights, but simply to exercise ours, visit your community and bring a message that we believe is long overdue for the majority of most Anglo Americans.

    For instance; this is just a small amount of information from The Color of Crime Report, Race, Crime, and Justice in America Second, Expanded Edition, 2005. It’s major findings were that.
    .
     Police and the justice system are not biased against minorities.
    Crime Rates
     Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
     When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
     Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
     The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.
    Interracial Crime
     Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
     Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
     Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
     Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
    Gangs
     Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
     Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.
    Incarceration
     Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
     Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.
