Jonesboro’s Budget

With the revelation that the Town of Jonesboro’s revenues are significantly less than budgeted, and expenditures are in many cases more than budgeted, what are the next steps to be taken?

LA RS 39:1310 – Amending the budget

A. When the governing authority has received notification pursuant to R.S. 39:1311, or there has been a change in operations upon which the original adopted budget was developed, the governing authority shall adopt a budget amendment in an open meeting to reflect such change. When an independently elected parish official has received notification pursuant to R.S. 39:1311(A), or when there has been a change in operations upon which the original adopted budget was developed, the independently elected official shall adopt a budget amendment and publish such amendment in the official journal as described by R.S. 39:1307(B). In no event shall a budget amendment be adopted proposing expenditures which exceed the total of estimated funds available for the fiscal year.

LA RS 39:1311 – Budgetary authority and control

A. The adopted budget and any duly authorized adopted amendments shall form the framework from which the chief executive or administrative officers and members of the governing authority of the political subdivision shall monitor revenues and control expenditures. The chief executive or administrative officer for a political subdivision subject to public participation as provided in R.S. 39:1307 shall advise the governing authority or independently elected official in writing when:

(1) Total revenue and other sources plus projected revenue and other sources for the remainder of the year, within a fund, are failing to meet total budgeted revenues and other sources by five percent or more.

(2) Total actual expenditures and other uses plus projected expenditures and other uses for the remainder of the year, within a fund, are exceeding the total budgeted expenditures and other uses by five percent or more.

(3) Actual beginning fund balance, within a fund, fails to meet estimated beginning fund balance by five percent or more and fund balance is being used to fund current year expenditures.

    And we are suppose to think that the folks preparing the budget and signing the checks on behalf of the residents of Jonesboro operate according to the law???

    • Phillip Hansen Says:

      To that I must echo a resounding EXACTLY! They do as they want, they conduct meetings as if they are out in the park or perhaps at the King’s grey block building and do as they want. No where in the State of Louisiana or in the Nation, has there ever been such a mockery of Government as exhibited in the Town of Jonesboro. The attorney and I use that term loosely, has to instruct the one in charge how to conduct the motions, voting, etc. They talk over everyone that has the floor and worst of all they have no self respect, because if they did, they would not chatter like a group of uncouth idiots and then not even know when or how to cast a vote. But if you observe their actions, you can compare them to the current state of affairs in the Town of Jonesboro and you have a duplication of the day to day activity. Point made, case closed. Idiots rule and reign and are led by a moron. Worst part of all, they televise this on youtube, all over the internet and act as if they are proud of themselves. Pitiful

    Leslie, show us you really care about Jonesboro and reduce your pay for the up coming year to $1.00… out Jonesboro! You are costing the town at least $90,000 a year…salary, retirement, health insurance, not having your own personal car….

    Lovely Tonya Wade…..reduce your recent contract to $1.00….help out the folks who you just paid you so much money.

    Attorney Stokes….you have prospered for many, many, many years off the folks of Jonesboro…work for $1 this coming year.

    Let the folks earning the most, give back to Jonesboro.

      If you have a job, take a $1 for the year and then I am sure they will fall in line behind your example.

        Those three have earned way too much for the job they have done ….it would be nice for them to work for $1 this coming year to make up for the overpayment they have been given.

    aise the taxes on property…..raise the sales tax for anything purchased in the town…..raise the cost of water and sewer…..raise the rent on the parks, town hall, etc…..

    Lower nothing!

    Leslie knows what to do …and do not worry…he got good help. At his right hand, sits the Rev David J Dill, a man with many, many self proclaimed talents and previous jobs…. On Leslie’s left he is covered by the famed Lestevic and Devine….two men on mission to right the wrongs they deem necessary, lead by Leslie.

    The Simmons…let them help you on the budget…they know how to manage alot of money that belongs to the tax payers.

    Leslie appears to have the help of Doug Stokes and Jim Fannin and DA Stewart…..I am wondering if they really are his soul mates or not. These white men may just appear to support Leslie when they might really be allowing him to bury himself in his actions..heck, they may be misleading him!!! The guys may be plotting against Leslie and he does not know.

    Wesley Horton has shown that he is not gonna help the Mayor or Mr. Perry would be earning a pay check.

    Leslie, you are the man….the leader …figure out who your real friends and supporters are and keep on! We can just cash in the rest of the CDs at the bank and then declare bankruptcy. After the bankruptcy, you will have a clean start that the previous folks have not messed up!

    You just got yourself into a messy situation that was created by everybody else and they trying to make you the scape goat!

    • George W. Says:

      Are you for real? I see why you post under anonymous. I wouldn’t want anypone to know I was as stupid as ou are either. Leslie is a Moron simply because he is black. Blacks can’t run water without making a mess. You are without a doubt black yourself, because you’re just as big an idiot as Leslie. The worst thuing that ever happened to this country is Blacks were allowed to hold positions of authority. Get back out in the field and pick some peas or cotton, do something you can’t screw up.

    It hasn’t been changed, although some people probably wish it had been. Our forefathers came to this country in protest to taxation without representation by England. We are not about to give up that right now. If the town officials can’t operate with the present income, let them cut their salaries, quit charging the town for the use of cell phones, stop trying to get taxpayers to pay for legal fees that they brought on themselves, and dozens of other needless expenses.

  7. Anonymous Says:

    They probably don’t want to, but they won’t have any choice if the people don’t vote for more taxes. The money will have to come from somewhere, or they will have to reduce operating expenses. That is what a budget is for — so government will not spend more than they take in.

  8. Anonymous Says:

    Guess the Town of Jonesboro officials are trying to pattern their administration after the Obama administration. It is estimated that the U.S. will spend 1.1 trillion dollars more than they take in this year. Both are probably going to wind up the same way if they don’t show some restraint soon.

    It will be interesting to see how this is explained to the audit committee at their next meeting, and what the committee’s response is.

      Get a clue, the Audit Committee will do exactly as they are instructed to do by the same one that tells the Legislative Auditor what to do. Do you actually think there will be any repercussions?
      No, they will do as they are told and they will keep sending tax money to JTown.

      The Fount has been keep quite lately….wonder why? Too busy stepping and fetching for Mr. Mayor????

      Oh but again….stepping and fetching for the man may be some of the final nails in the coffin.

      I am still believing Rev Dill is a plant to gather the goods on Leslie…why else would this former real estate agent, mortgage banker, master baker, bbq cooker, car washer/owner from Arcadia by way of California being sitting at the right hand of our Mayor Leslie Thompson.

      He is not a Louisiana born person….but he moved here…why did he not do real estate business or mortgage lending after re locating?

      What happen to his bakery? What happen to his car wash business?

      And now for the rest of the story……..who knows????

    Well, one thing about it, there is no way they can justifiably blame this situation on the administration of five or six years ago, because they have had plenty of time to do something about it, and it has only gotten steadily worse.

    • Phillip Hansen Says:

      They can’t justifiably blame anything on anyone other than the King of Jonesboro and he ain’t takin any blame. He was framed, he was set up, and the list goes on.

        It is not Leslie’s fault….stop picking on him….you are picking on him cause he is such a good leader you trying to hold the change he brings down.

        And then you pick on Devin and LeStevic….good looking, good honest men who want to help the Town of Jonesboro.

        You pick on Charla too.

    Don’t forget, $169,000 was taken from a Town CD to pay bills to contractors about a year ago, and a $76,000 CD was liquidated to pay part of the federal and state $90,000 due last month. According to what was said at the time, the other CD’s that the Town has can be used only for specific funds that are dedicated for those purposes. So the question for the Town now is, where is the money going to come from to pay these current debts? We are waiting for the answer.

    • Anonymous Says:

      This money was not taken….it was spend on the Town of Jonesboro authorized by the Mayor as he was elected to do.

      The money was Jonesboro’s and was there to spend on the needs of Jonesboro.

      Not certain why with so many talents he is a step and fetch man for Leslie Thompson.

      Of course, I do not know the bigger picture here….maybe Rev Dill is wanting to be Mayor Rev Dill.

      He sure like being a mayor groupie…..Arcadia, Grambling, Jonesboro…..who knows where else he tapes mayors.

    Another comment on “Anonymous” message at 8 a.m.: He questions whether the city attorney, state representative, and district attorney are “soul mates” of the mayor, and says they may just “appear to support Leslie.” I would remind this writer that it is not the duty of these three officials to be “soul mates” or “support” any elected official. He also seems to infer that the color of their skin may be affecting their actions, referring to them as “white.” This is an insult to these gentlemen, and I think they deserve a public apology from the person who sent this e-mail.

    • Anonymous Says:

      Well, it is a fact that DA Stewart and Rep Fannin both PAID Leslie for consulting prior to their elections.

      Doug Stokes is paid quite nicely by the Mayor who can not seem to run the meetings without assistance from Doug.

      You want to explain the duties of these three men?

      Public Apologies are needed….from all three of these men to the residents of Jonesboro and Jackson Parish!!!

    Well,Mr. Thompson,I see you have been up to your old tricks. I know you’ve missed me but I have been a little under the weather. But like a bad penny I always turn up when least expected. What is this about finding someone to build a new hotel on the bypass. You know and I know you were approached by a group of investors 2 years ago to do just that. Now do we really want to tell the public why you didn’t want them to build said motel.
    How about the fact you held a full time job selling insurance without a license. Or better yet how about practicing law without a license. But, the one that stands out in my mind at this moment is the reason you left Northwestern University. You have come up with some creative excuses before but that one takes the cake. You, Mr. Thompson, need to realize this is the age of electronic communication. Everything you do,say,or think about is at our finger tips. Anyone with a computer, iPad, or phone can check to see if you are telling the truth. Which you have, at this point, not been able to do.
    The paper work you and your stooge, the city attorney, had drawn up is not worth the paper it is written on. Do you really think we are not in titled to confront an elected official? Much less the duly elected city council. How on earth you got the idea the council can’t ask you questions at a meeting without submitting them to you in advance, of the said meeting, is ludicrous. I have told you before and I will say it again. We are watching your every move and will never cease until we, the people of Jonesboro, get justice.

    Well, Mr. Thompson, I know I said I would do everything in my power to keep the State of Louisiana from taking over our hometown but it seems that we have no choice.

We will not sit by and let you say to the world that Jonesboro is a racist community. You, Mr. Thompson, are playing the race card because you are playing with a deck of 51. You just think you have all of your friends behind you. I have talked to many people of all races and they are NOT going to follow you like sheep to the slaughter as you friends on the council do.
    On another note. I would like to see the paper work that is in the trunk of your car. Also, if you have all this paper work why didn’t you contact the auditors in Baton Rouge? The last time I checked there were no new developments in the on going investigation.

    And what are you going to do after you “know who we are,” Anonymous? Turn us in for being civic-minded? Is that a crime these days?

      Just saying you ain’t got the gut to come on in and ask for the documents at the TOJ Hall…..that is all.

      Big talk comes from being anonymous.

      Not one person is willing to ask the mayor for the documents he claims to have and has offered up at least twice to the public.

      Good point in why he would not send them to the auditors….my guess his answer would be “…uh…uh…they have not ask to see them and I….we….knows the exists”

      EVERYONE is afraid to ask him for the copies.

      Mr. Abbott, as a reporter, make a formal request and publish the documents OR publish the fact that the documents do not exist.

    Messy Anon
    How about you do this for me. Tell everyone YOUR name. Not willing to? Well, I wouldn’t either if I were you. If MR. Thompson, the head of the “Family”, were to ever find out you were playing both sides of the fence he might not keep you on the payroll. Then what would you do since you haven’t had a real job in years. As far as his cohorts in crime Stewart, Fannin, and Stokes go I have no respect for them what so ever. Also, I have been in and out of Mr. Thompsoms office on a regular basis. Surprised? Well,I guess not as surprised as the day the family filed charges against Judge Teat thinking he was the person watching Mr. Thompson drive in to the sunset between Louisiana and Texas. That law suit didn’t go so well for all of you now did it.
    As for threatening me with retribution from Mr. Thompson and his family I am LMAO. Sorry guys I just had to do that.
    We gave Mr. Thompsons followers the name family. It is an insult to the men and women in uniform to do otherwise.

      Great response Alby, “family”, is a better suited name. Guess the “soldier” name came when in the last election they all dressed in camo and pranced around at the Football game then strutted up to the voting boothes across the municipality the next day in the same stupid garb and declared “war”. They should declare war on stupidity, or better yet, if that is a crime, they would be serving a lenthgy sentence in the Graybar Hotel for that crime.

      Please do not use “family”… it is used by those of us from Italy for our organized activities

    Whether any taxpayer “has the guts,” as you put it, to come to Town Hall and ask to see the documentation to disprove the chages made against the mayor is beside the point. The real point is that the taxpayers who are footing the bill should not have to “ask.” If the mayor wants the people of Jonesboro to see that the charges made against him are false, he should be eager and willing to publish them
    just as the charges were published without anybody “asking for them.”

      Very good thought…not gonna happen though….it is a rational thought and I really do not believe we are speaking about a rational person.

      A rational, innocent person would certainly attempt, at all cost, to clear up the charges or thoughts of wrong handling of money.

      Rev Dill, you are the Mayor’s right hand man and handler, please have these checks published for all to see….you certainly know what would be in the back seat and/or trunk of the A-1 mobile.

    JONESBORO, La., (KNOE 8 News) – Jonesboro has some big plans in the works for its water-delivery system. The town is planning on replacing its entire water distribution system, most of which was put in place in the 1920’s and ’30s.

    The project, which will completely upgrade the water system and the quality of both the town’s drinking water and wastewater, is expected to cost more than $3 million.

    The current plan has Jonesboro issuing bonds totaling $3.2 million and receiving just under another half million from the Lousiana Public Facilities Authority in the form of a loan.

    The project includes drilling two new water wells, along with the installation of a new 200,000-gallon ground storage tank. In the process, the town also plans to install new digital water meters.

      Super! I must have missed this information at the past town council meeting….wonder how I forgot such good news?

    • Garden District Says:

      You people need to run James Roy Fannin out of town. How on God’s Green earth are you people going to pay for that? How?

      I have been joking around about the entertainment factor with your Town, but this not a joking matter any longer. How can you pay for something that amounts to that total and earlier a few weeks ago, the financials that were listed here showed there was a severe deficit in the Revenue to date. How are you going to pay for that project? You do realize that the water rates will soar to pay off the loans?

      We have it made over here compared to you pitiful folks……I apologize for making light of such a serious situation.

    The KNOE news report was an error. It should have read
    “Jonesville” instead of “Jonesboro.” We accept the aplogies of all those who sent in messages that we never say the “good things” about Jonesboro. that’s because we can’t find any to write about.
