Low Interest Loans — to the State and Local Government

We spent the month of April re-registering Lynn’s motorhome and motorcycle for another year. Today is the 22nd of May and he has not received a refund for the money he paid for on-line renewal, not to mention the fee for using the online service. When I was finished arguing Lynn’s position at the office of the city tax collector, I demanded an immediate refund back in April. The Tax Collector told me that the on-line funds were handled by an out-side company and that Lynn would have to arrange his refund through that company. Isn’t that just grand? The City is saying “It’s not our fault, we outsourced that function and even though we retain the right to set and collect fees, it’s not the Tax Collector’s problem when things go wrong.”

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
