County Incompetence Costs Big Money

The failure of the Owens' administration to properly spend $40 million in collected impact fees has cost county taxpayers nearly $500,000 in court, and could potentially costs millions more.

By not spending the money quickly enough, and in the appropriate locations, the County has opened itself to several costly lawsuits where developers and residents are seeking the return of their funds. In addition, funds that have been available for badly needed infrastructure upgrades have gone unspent.
