<quoted text> The sewer department didnt get $5.00 raises. The police got the biggest raises. And that money doesnt come from the 66% sewer increase. And none of the sewer rate money can be used on general fund. Get your facts together before you post on this site. You may be a very smart person so dont get caught up in this mud slinging. Why arent Larry and Gaynell looking for the money that was stolen. This mayor hasnt done anything crooked. He has just let the police make him look a little foolish. And the surplus from the sewer has been used to pay down debt and to cover the reserve fund. None has been used for general fund. I dont think that most people know that the general fund and sewer are kept apart.
The sewer rates are a "side" issue, dear. The real issue is how the city is gouging taxpayers in THIS economy to give employees $5 an hour raises. The city was "broke" which is what prompted the sewer rate increase. So, it should go without saying that when the city is no longer "broke", the money should go to the areas in which the taxpayers are suffering. Who gets that sort of raise as a government employee in this economy?

The big "winners" here are Ted Calvert who went from $7.25 an hour to $23.99 an hour---$16.74 raise**, Layne Troutman, who received a $3.31 raise to $30.74 an hour, Ken Bernardi at $5.12, Besednjak at $4.40, Steven Clar at $4.766, Jason Ellison at $4.72, George Jetter at $4.75, Michael Miller at $5.06, Mike odonnell at $4.76, Jason Paulley $4.76, Dan Patchin $4.65, Jason Paulley $4.76, Proffitt at $4.76, Puckett at $5, Jason Rives at $4.80, Jeremy Schmidt at $4.40, Michael Smith at $6.16***, Tim wade at $4.50, Bryan Whittaker at $4.98, and Jeremy Wilson at $4.72.

Since I've names "winners", you may also want to know who the "losers" are, so kindly point to any shepherdsville taxpayer and you have the answer.

I *believe* that only three of the officers names actually have degrees.

I am all about people earning a living wage but these raises in THIS economy are just nuts.

As far as your comment about "mudslinging", you may want to read this thread again with the purpose of comprehension in mind. Clearly, I redirected the poster who tried desperately to turn this into a thread about a dummy in jail.*That* was mudslinging.

Here's the deal. Sewer taxes can only be used to pay the sewer debts and for the sewer fund. They have nothing to do with the general fund, where the city workers' pay comes from. All the other city taxes pay for that. You can't use money from one fund to the other either, that is illegal. The high sewer rates is used to fix the screw ups in the city sewer program that were overseen by ex-mayor Tinnell, Larry Hatfield, and Junior Bright. So if there is any complaint about high sewer rates, it should go towards those who caused the huge mess that is now being fixed. Until those problems are fixed, and the sewer dept/fund is stable, there will have to be a means of funding it, and the only way to do that is the current sewer rate. Once again, city wages come from the general fund, sewer taxes go to the sewer fund. These two can't be mixed or shared from.
Completely incorrect. You cannot pay their wages out of the sewer fund but you MOST DEFINITELY can pay for the sewer downfall with general funds. Don't get that confused. That is what they keep telling taxpayers trying to confuse them. And cograts on your pay raise.

We have no buildings over twenty-feet tall in this county.We don't have a great number of fires or catastrophes that present a consistent danger to these local firemen.And as it stands statistically,the most dangerous thing that a fireman can do in this county,is stand on the back on the truck during transport.Not fighting fires.So honestly,I vote to give the policeman another dollar or two an hour out of the bucket before we give it to the firemen.

My questions in terms of firefighters would be: how often do they have to respond to calls? What types of calls do they get?

I would imagine that law enforcement officers are in much greater danger and (gasp) required to do more. So, the comparison is like apples and oranges.

On a side note, I'm thankful that I rarely see volunteer firefighters on the streets anymore. They tend to drive like complete idiots!

Heck, the fire fighters have to respond to meth lab explosions daily out in BC. That's way more dangerous than those dangerous no license plate illumination criminals and the that box of Krispy Kreams that Shep police deal with daily.

Daily? Please.

Police are also required to respond to those labs, so your point is moot.

Fire Fighters jobs are dangerous. They respond to accident scenes....many fire fighters have been killed or injured due to rubber necking idiots looking at accidents or drunks coming thru at the time. Working fires is dangerous enough with out the added risk of exploding ammunition, meth labs, stored chemicals, etc. Did you not just hear about the Firemen held hostage? They put their lives on the line everytime they roll out the door. For many years Fireman were all volunteer. Chief Jim Enlow put in 30 years with no pay...I don't see anyone complaining about that. Many of the paid guys there now were volunteers for many years.

No sir.But,seeing that an officer can receive the same pay as a deadliest catch crab=boat fisherman in this mild,safe and low-crime district,I really wish that I was.I only feel that policeman find themselves in dangerous situations during the course of a hard day's work more than the local fireman do.Somewhere in the world firemen may be earning a raise.But it isn't happening here.

Yes, WHEN they are required to work, it could be dangerous. But, really, how often is that?

Historically, only one firefighter died in this town in recent history and his death was a complete fluke--and avoidable if not for ignorance. I'm not saying they don't deserve their pay. I am saying that the danger related to their job does not euate to the dangers faced by law enforcement.
