My question is can we the tax payers get a referendum on the next ballot to make our police and fire part time?

Now I lived here for 15+ years and my taxes keep going up, little tired if it we as a town can not afford their raises they are due and to pay the pensions. We need to do something and do it fast

I would think all the revenue they recieve for all those pitifut tickets they write should cover the pensions.

Boy you're not kidding! I got two tickets for TINTED Licence Plate Covers - and they're both crystal clear to boot!

Any license plate covers are illegal. Clear or tinted

Police and fire both took 0% raises for the next two years

Yeah I know, but to be giving out these tickets to Metra parkers is beyond petty, not to mention prompting people to park elsewhere. They are making $325 per year already and to risk losing that revenue for a $60 fine is penny-wise and dollar-foolish. If the issue is the covers and not the tinting, just write the tickets for licence plate covers alone! They are also giving tickets to cars parked in the driveways which is private property and jamming them inside the cars side-view mirrors and breaking the remote control.
