If no one noticed, this city administration has its hypocritical hat on.
I'll get right to the proof.
'Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin said that with recent cuts to Community Development funding and further cuts anticipated in coming years, “financing installation of security cameras for a privately owned facility would not be a priority of the administration with the funds available.”
“The private operator should bear the cost burden of such a proactive security measure,” McLaughlin said.'
And for those who still don't understand, '“The private operator should bear the cost burden of such a proactive security measure,” McLaughlin said.'
Obviously this doesn't count dictator Leighton or JJ. Free gas and free security systems (that the taxpayers sometimes payed the monthly fees for). Oh and now if you steal gas you get a new Jeep, I wonder if the dealership (or its owner) contributed to any mayoral or council political campaigns? Why not fix on of the MANY cars in the DPW lot and let him use that? If the city is in such bad financial shape that would be cheaper. BTW McGroarty had dozens of broken vehicles in the DPW lot also.
Leighton said his administration “has never spent taxpayer’s money frivolously and we are not about to start now.”
OH? What about the school bus that hasn't moved in AT LEAST 2 years? No waste of taxpayer money there.
I guess it also doesn't include the sewer gear sitting under the Cross Valley.
You should read this as well.
