County control board?

Sam Hoyt wants the city's control board's jurisdiction to expand to include county government, as well. Bruce Fisher and Paul Tokasz think that a control board for the county is premature. Why? Fisher says the city had no more ability to tax its people or borrow money when the control board came in. I guess he's saying; wait until we raise taxes to their constitutional limits, then come in and fix our mess. Seems to me it'd be more prudent to fix it now while the fixin's good. Tokasz wants the county to clean up its own mess. Kind of like they're doing in Albany, I suppose. Honestly, you can't make this shit up.
