Why are 2/3 rds of the Des Plaines fire personnel being moved. The last time this occured it cost the Des Plaines taxpayers 35,000. This is unacceptable. We are having huge financial problems in this city and moving FD personnel and costing the taxpayers a large amount of money goes unchecked. We need to look into this and find out why our elected politicans have no problem with this cost.

This can not be. We are broke and the council is authorizing this amount of overtime to move personnel around? Come on people this is nuts.
