Wonder where all the money came from now we are going to have $450,000.00 carry over, I guess be cause the auditor had polio that is his excuse for not quite telling the truth. He and the blond mayor can't get it right.

What many do not understand is that they think a public entities "budget" is the amount actually needed to operate. All the initial budget figures are padded with "wants" and used by the admin to paint a financial picture that benefits their political agenda. For example, much was made about the 2013 budget being the lowest in 30 years;however, it wasn't mentioned that the vast majority of the reduction was from lost revenue from townships and insurance billings. The mayor had a union busting agenda, so he eliminated revenue to paint the picture he needed in order to push for elimination of the FD, simple as that. Ironic thing is that eventually the city will contract with Paint Creek and eliminate HFD, then over the next ten years or so wages and benefits for the Fire District will slowly creep up to keep pace with the market and we will be paying Paint Creek employees the same level as we would have been paying HFD employees, but we will lose control that we currently have over the operations. Pretty stupid move on the part of the Mayor but his motivation is short term anyway, without thinking about long term impacts. It really shows his ignorance about business management.
