GREAT JOB BY OUR FIRE DEPT!! MAYBE THE MAYOR SHOULD STEP IN THE FIRE DEPT SHOES BEFORE HE IS SO QUICK TO LAY THESE GUYS OFF. WHY NOT CUT SOME OF THE OVER PAID ADMIN. JOBS AT THE SCHOOL DEPT. NOT THESE GUYS THAT RISK THERE LIVES! GOOD JOB F.D.!!

NEWS: You are 110% correct - the EFD does a great job ... the whole city needs every one of them ... these scare tactics of laying off firefighters and police officers is ridiculous !! and we need good teachers - we don't need overcrowded classrooms -- especially since about half of the students don't speak or understand English ...taking away time for our English-speaking students !!!

Carlo has way too many bodies on the payroll...just look at his office staffing ... and the pay they receive, plus their expensive health care...

I think anyone who does a household budget with limited means could easily find many ways to cut his inflated budget. Health care costs are going up - now is certainly not the time to add to the payroll expenses. In many businesses, there are layoffs with those not laid off picking up the slack. Certainly this could be the case at the big blue building!

and an SUV being driven to Middleton every night costs big bucks ... how about a Smart Car for those trips ...??? Not enough prestige there though I guess. I'm sure the SUV is filled up with gas before it leaves Everett for the weekend...

So many many ways to cut without the scare tactics of cutting Everett's safety personnel and our teachers. Get real, Everett's citizens are pretty dam smart and can see through all this ...

One more thing: IF the people that lived in this house that had the fire are EVERETT residents (not out of state or out of city), are we helping them out with the fire fund that was set-up for Everett residents????

How about the gas cards for the SUV that gets driven to Middleton every night and cell phones for all his employees who play on facebook and monitor blogs all day.

Everetts fire department deserves more respect from the city officials. They put there lives on the line for our community.while politicians hold a sign for a vote and promise that they are going to fix everything.which they never deliver.

Good job MR Mayor on getting those hydrants fixed. Keep giving money to your buddies at city hall and the School Supt. Your water dept cant even put a hydrant in right and connect it to make sure it works. But cutting the FD staffing works for ya. Your a real smart guy!

What good is a fire hydrant anyway when it's buried under a mound of snow? How about getting the legion of Code Enforcers to give out a couple of tickets to the same old people who don't care enough about their houses or their neighbors to clear off the hydrant in front of their properties. The fire trucks were out clogging up traffic as they tried to shovel them all out today. We should get on this now before the mayor makes all of his cuts. When two guys show up to a fire with a bucket next year, they'll need some place to fill it up!
