The Buffalo County supervisors and commissioners are ego-centric jerks; they lie to citizens. Then they force things on citizens KNOWING that it will create psychological, physical, and financial hardship on the citizen. They will NOT give an inch. They are totally without compassion
the county supervisors waste taxpayer $$ on "fluff" - then force changes that hurt citizens
Buffalo County is beautiful; it really is. And most of the people are nice. But you do NOT want to live here. The county supervisors are a group of incompetents on a power trip. For no reason, other than just to show off, they are trying to change our address. They took it on themselves to name our driveway. My husband is making an appointment w/ our lawyer. The county claims it HAS to change, and cannot be avoided... Unless we're willing to pay a $ 650 $ BRIBE😮
