Queen Kay closes early

The Madison County Tax Collector decided to shut it all down early on the day before Thanksgiving.  Madison County residents who tried to pay their property taxes or renew their car tags were SOL if they went to the Tax Collector's office after 3:00 PM Wednesday.  All they saw was this sign:





The taxpayers are already paying for Queen Kay and her employees to take off work on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.    Kay Pace owes her employers an apology.

OMG. The HORROR. Tax Collector closes 2 hours early before the Thanksgiving break. What a bunch of of little girls, crying over this. Grow up. I'm sure these same people were bitching yesterday about something else in their pathetic lives. Doctor recommends, Take a midol for cramping and get a nap. LOL

Are you kidding me? This is a problem? I’m sure it was nice for those employees to get off a couple hours early. This is small-time whining.

Ok, thanks Queen Kay. Now go feed the horses, and shut the barn door.

This is just sick and wrong here. It was her hired help, who didn't shut the door and a man died on scene there and 5 beautiful horses as well.

Morbid here is an understatement..
Geeez.

Hey Sheila....do us a favor and quit and move.

Pay online you old geezers.

Kay is never there. She quit a long time ago, but still draws a check. She doesn't go to the office any more. And the tax collector's office is the worst run county agency in Madison County. It is terrible.

Paying online for a fee is why @2:16 PM will never amass wealth.

Madison County tax collectors office is for me staffed and run by extremely competent and friendly folks. I don't know the Tax Collector. But
must assume that all of the staff reports to her.

4:32 must work there.

It is no secret that the Tax Collector's office in Madison County is full of incompetence. The Tax Assessor is good. I had a problem with the collector and went to the assessor's office. After a subtle "we know," they stepped up and advocated on my behalf to fix the problem, even though it was not their place to.

Kay Pace has closed the doors at 3 pm for several on Wednesday before the holidays off.
No one does anything about it.

Anonymous said...

If I take the time to drive to Canton to make payment it is reasonable to expect the office to be open until 5:00.

This is called the real world. If you get paid for working until 5:00, then work until 5:00.

Hey 1:29 Shelia Jones has gotten more done for Madison County than you ever have so shut your pie hole & move back to Nicknar!!!

The Board of Supervisors is authorized to close offices. Miz Pace is not. All this yammer from you clowns telling people how to purchase on line or show up another day is silly. We pay these people to work certain hours and be open for business during published hours, not to knock off early and head to Wal-Mart.

And the note said they were closed down because some state agency had closed early. What a crock.

She's simply another arrogant, entitled, useless bureaucrat who has been in office way too long. She comes in three times a week for a couple of hours.

The pettiness of this is almost unbelievable to me who lives elsewhere in MS. So a person in an administrative position chooses to let her employees go home a few hours early on the day before Thanksgiving. What's the issue? I have during my working years had the administration as one of my responsibilities, had concern for the employees, and one way I showed it concretely was by sending them home early on days before Thanksgiving and Christmas. I expect that there were not a few bosses in the Hinds-Madison-Rankin county areas who let their employees off for part of Wednesday. Then, speaking as one who has always had a significant duties assigned to him for the Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, I can tell you that having some time on Wednesday afternoon to do preparation for the meal. Unless there is something I do not know about the politics of this situation, my first response to the information about the the closing of the office a little early on Wednesday was positive and to commend the administrator for showing concern for her employees. This is not just a "no big deal" excusing, it is a "thanks for doing this for the employees.

I assure you I have more respect for Mrs. Pace for letting them off a little early than I would have if she didn't.
P>S> I think she does a pretty good job.

Kay Pace does a terrific job.

I’ve attended her tax sales which are run smoothly and efficiently.

She makes the county more money in those three days than you can easily count.

And it is like clock work.

Well done Kay Pace and every hard working person in that office.

I appreciate you and your hard work even if Sheila Jones doesn’t

KF,
Not surprised, most county offices follow her lead. I bet JC closed early too.

Anonymous said...

What part of it do you people supporting Kay Pace decision NOT understand?
She did not have permission from the supervisors to close early on Wednesday.
She didn't ask, she never asked, she will probably do this again at Christmas.

She does not have permission to close to office early.

It would seem you folks consent to an elected official not to following the rules.

Explain please.

Anonymous said...

Can someone explain the barn door banter?

Anonymous said...

1:13 from the other posts it sounds like it includes the tragic deaths of several horses and maybe one person.

Anonymous said...

Kay doesn’t answer to the board of supervisors. That office, including everyone in it, works for her.

She doesn’t have to ask permission to close early. She’s elected.

She’s accountable to us, as taxpayers, not the board of supervisors.

Black Fleet of Presidential Vehicles said...

It's true that she is not under the supervision of the Board. However, 3:52, you are wrong. County office closures and holidays are decided by the Board of Supervisors, are voted upon, spread across the minutes legally and announced and posted.

What's this nonsense about her letting these poor gals off to spend a little time in the kitchen at home? The closure note said the offices were shut down because the Department of Revenue shut down. She wanted it to appear that they might as well knock off and head to the house since on-line communication with that state department was not possible.

It's a crock. Pure and simple. She doesn't give a shit what the public thinks. She's not running again. She retired and still draws her pay. First she lets her boyfriend drive county vehicles, then she implements sexually discriminatory hiring practices, then she amasses a large fleet of black suvs to waste money (the county pays for those), next she decides to close down early several times a year (because she has no choice of course) and next there's the barn door thing. Her magic carpet ride has lasted twenty odd years.

You people making joke about the horses that got out by accident resulting in a human life being taken. I hope you reap what you sow. There is a special place in hell for people you making sick jokes. I'm sure Kay Pace feel bad about all of this.

Anonymous said...

Kay Pace cares about no one but Kay Pace. I have worked in a County position and have worked until 5:00 on many Christmas Eves. True there was a skeleton crew, but we were open. I am sure there are many people who worked until closing who had to prepare Thanksgiving dinner as well. It is true Kay is seldom if ever in her offices. Plus it was not the first time those horses were out.

Alpha Storm. Do you KNOW Kay Pace. How do you know what she feels.

Alapha Storm said...

Yes, I do know her.

For twenty years Pace has surrounded herself with a gaggle of groveling girls who pretend to adore her. The queen and her subjects, much like MHB. Throw the peons an occasional bone and they'll continue to grovel and make you look good.

On the other hand, I'm trying to remember the last time (or any time) I saw one of the counter-attendants crack a smile. In either office.

Anonymous said...

7:12 a.m. - Would you smile if you had come come work for that woman every day? They women should be happy as hell they have that job. Average pay for a counter person for the collector is 45-50K. Collector and Assessor employees get statutory raises every year that the rest of the county employees aren't entitled to.

This post and these comments leave me bewildered...
I have known Kay Pace my whole life. She is a good person and does a good job. These nasty, personal jabs are unforgivable, especially about the horrific accident. Shame!

Anonymous said...

1:21 - you obviously have never had to work around or with the collector. I dont see how the woman can do the job at all. She is never in the office. If it wasnt for Ms Myrtle the collectors office would come to a screeching halt.

Anonymous said...

I wouldn't have a problem with this except her employees were paid for a full 8 hours using my tax dollars!

Anonymous said...

3:04 - why don't you go grip at supervisors about justice court?? Those women there only work 4 days a week and get paid for a full 40 hour week and the supervisors and county administrator are good with it. They will tell you that they come in at 7 am and stay till 6pm. That's a big fat lie. All you have to do is ride by the JC building on hwy 51 at those times and you'll see.

The county administrator installed time clocks for all 'county' employees to hit. To use them you must use your county employee number and a finger print OR pin number. Those women down there clock one another in and out and the court clerk adjusts and verifies their time.

Madison County Justice Court is the only county office that does this. If Supervisor Jones wants to run he flag up about something she to certainly do something about that practice and the fact that the same office closes on flea market day when the flea market has zero affect on it.

The fleet of black cars belong to the Tax Assessor, not the Tax Collector.

"Collector and Assessor employees get statutory raises every year that the rest of the county employees aren't entitled to."

Back that up with a link! There is no statutory pay raise for hourly employees.

Anonymous said...

Justice Court also gives their employees day off with pay for their birthday! And I hear they get a shopping day for Christmas. With pay! Supervisor Jones definitely needs to look at this!

Anonymous said...

You know, after all that has been said in the comments section here, whether its right or wrong, nothing will be done about it. Kay will continue to do want Kay wants, the Assessor, Chancery Clerk, Circuit Clerk all will continue with what they do for their employees. Want to know why?? Because they are ELECTED officials and the BOS cant do a thing to stop it.

The county installed the time clocks in every office and forced employees that had been salaried for 20-30+ years to start punching a clock. None of the other departments, tax collector, tax assessor, chancery clerk, circuit clerk, DA use the clocks. All of their employees are still salaried. The BOS cannot make those employees use the time clocks because they dont work for the BOS. They work for the other ELECTED officials and the BOS cant force them to do squat.

Anonymous said...

Plus, you have a planning and zoning director that's been with the county maybe year that recently got a 10K raise and only works half days.....BOS can do something about that since he answers to them or the county admin.

BOS said...

@1:26
Duh?
BOS controls everyone’s budget, even elected officials. It’s called the power of the purse, and even the great and mighty Sheriff must worry and beg and POLITIC for more $$ for his department every year.
BOS also sets salaries for elected officials. For example, County Attorney makes $111,000, as set by the BOS, the controlling statute only sets a hi/lo range for the BOS to review.

So, yeah, the BOS is the sh*t, and it only takes 3 votes.

God bless

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
