“I consider [trial by jury] as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” -Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Paine, 1789. When the republic of free states was young, all jurors were told of their right to judge the law, as well as the facts of the case. Then judges decided that juries should no longer be told of their power to act as a safeguard against bad laws, unjust courts or unethical lawmakers. Now, all jurors are instructed to accept the law as it is given to them by the judge, even in cases where the law is clearly unjust, or more often, not fully disclosed. If you are selected as a juror, you have the right and duty to do the right thing - to follow your conscience and to judge the law as well as the facts of the case. You, the informed juror, are the ultimate authority to hold government accountable to the people.

ARTICLE I.ION

STITUT

The Jury’s True Authority

Judges may not tell you this, but when you sit on a jury,

you have the right to vote according to your conscience and to judge the law being applied to the case. As a juror, you are the final safeguard of justice.

If the judge fails to provide the jury the entire wording of the law, or does not allow the defense to introduce as evidence the portion of the law that was left out, or you think the law he gives you is a bad or unconstitutional law or a good law being improperly applied, or there are other factors that would make you regret a vote to convict someone - then it is your right and duty as a juror to vote “Not Guilty” even if you are the only juror who does and you therefore “hang” the jury. You cannot be punished for voting “Not Guilty” no matter what the judge tells you. It only takes one aware juror to hang a jury and if all jurors acquitt, it cannot be retried by any court.

But now you know the truth:

Our lawmakers sometimes pass bad laws, and, at times, good laws have been misused. Throughout history reasoning jurors have refused to convict fellow citizens who were accused of breaking the law: They freed tax protesters during the

Whiskey Rebellion of 1794, refused to convict those who aided runaway slaves in violation of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, freed bootleggers charged during Prohibition 1920-30, and released Vietnam War objectors 1960-70.

Unelected SECC Board with Unlimited Taxing Authority
Scott Emergency Communications Center 1100 E. 46th Street Davenport, Iowa 52807

The question is NOT if it was a good idea to consolidate the 3 dispatch services for cost and safety reasons. We were told it would save taxpayers $4.6 million over 20 years. That figure came from a $103,000 Consolidation Study that outlined how that savings could be achieved through a 6,000 square foot building, costing $2.3 million, and $2.1 million to equip the building. Instead, SECC911 is now a $26 million project carrying $28 million of debt for 20 years, and is the 2nd largest expenditure of the County budget at $8 million dollars a year.

Yes, it’s done. We’re standing here looking at a 28,450 square foot building. What we can do now, however, is diligently watch over its $8 million a year price tag. The levy is uncapped.

There will be immediate pressure to increase spending & taxes.

budget by another $650K in salary and benefits 5. SECC is required to build a $1.2 million fund balance reserve. 6. The residential tax rollback is expected to increase by 4% for the next 7 years. Will these additional tax dollars be used to lower the levy rate or grow the agency? 7. Taxation to pay for SECC goes beyond the new tax levy for the long term debt. We have a 911 fee on our cell phone bills, and Scott county could implement a

How does an expenditure of this magnitude never come before the people as a referendum?
1. Create an independent authority through a joint powers agreement, (the 28E intergovernmental agreement for SECC). The board of directors put in place then has the newly created power to enter into contracts, acquire property, and the authority to approve the purchases.

The Concerned Citizen ~ May - June 2011

- Institutional Laziness Abounds - Rubber Stamping is Constant - Avoiding Scrutiny is Refined - Surrendering Authority is Commonplace

The Big Picture:

2. The County board of supervisors has the ability to create a “local emergency management Fund” and fund this authority through a special levy. That levy is not subject to any of the caps on taxes.” 3. “The City of Davenport is classified as a “Charter City and has the ability to finance capital improvements through the sale of bonds authorized by the City Council”. With a vote by the Davenport City Council, the taxpayer now has a $14 million, 20 year building debt. 4. The Board of Supervisors then used its bonding powers for the purchase of the emergency communication systems. The SECC budget will authorize the repayment each year for the County’s debt service. So while we all snoozed, we took on a second 20 year, $14 million debt for equipment.

Local Governments Are Growing Expenses & Programs Beyond Tax Payers’ Needs & Affordability

And that’s how a project that would carry a $28 million debt never came before the people as a referendum.

1. The service contracts that were placed in long term debt will expire and grow the operating budget, 2. Equipment will become obsolete before we’ve paid that 20 year debt, and we’ll be paying for replacement and the original debt. 3. The payroll expense ($4.4M) now sits at where it was projected to be in 2017 and grows each year. 4. The intergovernmental agreement states that 30 months after consolidation, if mutually agreed by the SECC Board and Medic, the 9 Medic dispatchers will become Scott County employees. This could impact the SECC

Now We Know, Never Again

In the end, however, the most important lesson is to make sure this doesn’t happen again. Understand how intergovernmental agreements are formed—now we know what can and did happen when a board has the power to contract, purchase, and approve their own purchases and have a uncapped levy at their disposal to pay for it. Will you now engage, attend meetings, watch the board actions and get involved?
