Government is a business. The more efficient and effective you are with the limited resources the more productive you are. Maintaining fiefdoms is local government of the 60's, if a new/interim mayor has been appointed make your mark and move forward. Where can the village save? Identify and move forward. Don't say that's just not the way we have done it and make that your excuse. Move forward with vision for the best of the community. A model sweeping the country is contract policing. You do not have a chief to run interference and create nonsensical misconceptions. Call the county and see what they can do to assist. We can fix roadways, get city water, reduce liabilities, reduce pension obligations, improve services. How do we do that, a sweep of the pen. Reduce the weight at the top and save money to put into the community which is the most important. Just a thought. The nay sayers, come up with a better plan.

Contracting police is nuts. People do we want the wild west? Police are the glue to a safe town for the residents. The village cops care for the community because they have a vested interest where county would not.
