Here’s The Scoop…”Tightening Our Belts”…The 2nd LBTS-VFD Statement Of Income And Expense 1/1/09-3/31/09…

CREATIVE BELT TIGHTENING….

Dear Readers…This is the 2nd statement requested by this writer for the LBTS-VFD income and expense over 3 months (the 1st …10/1/08-12/31/08…prev. post..VFD cat.)….As the Vice Mayor/ Dep. Chief pompously sat on the dais June 23, 2009 and spoke of how all Town departments were “tightening our belts”….He must have been joking….He surely did not include his department…The VFD under his direction has collected assets …perks…and big-boy toys with ongoing regularity….Starting with the McIntee Public Safety Complex…(Including a Conference room….filled with Jerry McIntee memorabilia on the walls…for your information Comm. Clottey)…and ATVs…firetrucks…jet ski(s)..a boat…new lights and sirens…special jackets……a new Dep Chief command vehicle…all from the funds paid from the contract and our annual $130 fire assessment …along with the never ending …Booster Fund and an assist from the Chief forgoing part of his salary…HMMMM…
