Evans Taxpayers Shrugged

“We Had A Huge Debt”

In the July 30th 2015 Sun News, Evans Supervisor Keith Dash is quoted as follows: ““I think I can speak for both councilmen that when we took office four years ago we had a huge water project and a huge debt.

In 2015 the board spent another $1,700,000 on the water project then borrowed another $625,000 for various projects.

If the debt was “huge” on 1-1-2012, what adjective would the town board use today?

How about the Latin “Mega Debitum” for “mega debt”.

Or “Ingens Debitum” for “monstrous debt”.

Since a monster is scarier than a mega we will declare Ingens Debitum the winning name of this category!
