Judge says Ni!

and for those who didn't catch this sidebar that may be a far bigger story than even what is the headline today..  From Jim Parsons(WTAE) tweet this afternoon, it would seem the county didn't bother to extend a contract with the folks doing the assessment last year.  That could, I emphasize could, be a far bigger topic next week than even whether some form of a contempt order comes down.  If the remainder of the county's assessment isn't completed, which it most certainly isn't yet...  then who is going to be completing it?

Just asking the question is all.

Whatever that answer is...  boroughs, townships, cities, school districts and anyone else caught in the cross fire probably should plan for ever more extended timeframe for all of this.  Look it up: Tax Anticipation Bond.   Though it is a bit unclear to me if you could insure a bond at a decent rate given the scale of uncertainty anywhere at the moment.

Dear Mr. Fitzgerald,

I don't need to put you in jail, because I can make you responsible for shutting down the City of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh School District (and every other municipality and school district in the County if it comes to it).

Your Pal,

Judge Wettick

So maybe the metaphor you were looking for was Clinton versus Gingrich.

Ya think it was intentional as a way to stop the reassessment?
