Disgusting. Outrageous. Irresponsible. Sickening. Stupid. Corrupt. Unfair. Ridiculous.

Borough Council had NINE years to deal with this, but as usual, why deal with an issue responsibly when you know you can always go to the taxpayers for a bail-out?

Government at EVERY level treats citizens like a bottomless well to solve *their* problems...problems THEY created!

Meanwhile, Borough/government employees are getting RAISES?

What arrogant, greedy little piggies. And of course, they'll all blame someone else. They'll tell us they "have no choice", it's "for your own good", "do you want us to have to cut 'essential services'" ??

Answer: YES.

We don't need 12 people to clean up leaves from the streets. The cops don't need brand new cars.
We don't even NEED that many cops in the Borough. How about all the people sitting around in the Borough office every day.

A government has very few real responsibilities it must fulfill, after that it just becomes a bloated bureaucracy designed to sustain itself - that's all it is.

Rather than asking citizens to tighten THEIR belts even further, it's time for the Borough to start trimming some of its OWN fat, of which there's plenty.

You are so right they are all lazy, irresponsible and need to obtain real jobs. I say do away with the police department, fire department, highway department, codes department, trash collection and we the citizen will take care of it ourselves. Lets do it like Billie the Kid would.

All of you are right. Now it's time to find the right people to replace the ones we saw tonight. So start recommending people you know to stand up and run for public office. If you want change you Are going to have to have people that can make that happen! After tonight it would be a land slide election.

I bet people will be standing in line for a position that pays nothing, is absolutely non appreciative. Just like the clown at the meeting suggesting volunteers to collect garbage and fight fires. All lip service when it comes to volunteering. 100 citizens out of a population of 15000 attend a meeting and you expect something to change for us. More than 60 percent of those that spoke moved here from out of town. Land of opportunity with low taxes. The influx iin the area is part of the reasons we had our taxes go up.

You have the ego of a HAM and inability to look inward to see just how unimportant you are. This is all you have isn't it?

My O my you have been a worthy opponent. As far as how important someone is or is not would be totally up to the individual. Now since you are smarter than me about geographic location you will see from this post I moved again. Wonder how I do that so quickly. Want to guess?
