Normally I use this page to tell how the Mayor is using the fire dept like a baby uses a diaper, well today I'm going to point out that the city council has done nothing to stop him. One, with the initials KK, even told a lady who was worried that all this is about the fire fighters wanting more overtime.... WHAT??! That lying B.... bad lady. We are trying to get more men hired which would LOWER Overtime.
This is it. It is time to put some facts about our city council out there. The council gets full time benefits and full time retirement for working, Get this 17 'work' sessions, 17 regular Sessions and 3 combined sessions, PER YEAR!! None of which are more than a couple hours long and the Regular sessions, where the public can speak, are only about 1 hour long and the public is only allowed 5 minutes per speaker!!! To this a gas allowance while (I can't prove this one, yet) actually getting their gas form DPW! $13,500 a year with a possible $2400 a year health care buy out (of which 4 take it).
A Part time job with full time benefits and these 'people' will not speak up! I want to know where they stand on taking Engine 3 out of service. People It is time to make the council members state where they stand on the truly important issues! Start demanding they publicly state where they stand.
Enough ranting for now,
