Hey Chief Shobert have you thought about laying off Battalion Chiefs? You idiot!

I will not be paying this. What will they do when no one signs up for it? Bet the fire chief moves on by the time the whole thing explodes. I just can't figure out how they start charging for a service they already provide. Can you imagine if your trash man shows up at your door this week and says "I know you already paid for my service but we need more money so write me a check or I won't take your trash"
Can someone explain the difference?

These guys make over 100k a year, unreal benefits and retire making something like 70 percent of their highest paid year for life!

Chief Shobert tried the same game in Hemet. He claimed he would bring in a ton of money in fees to the City to help the fire budget. He failed and left the Hemet Fire Dept. in complete shambles with no one to take the helm. He was the worst Fire Chief I ever worked for!
Murrieta is falling into the same trap. Even if people start to sign up for the program it WILL NOT bring in enough money to bring his budget into the black. The City Council obviously didn't review what he did before they hired him.

My uncles were firemen. They used to clean the fire station. They did the yardwork at the station. They didnt have cable T.V. They did not make the salary or bennies these guys do. They sure as heck did not retire with all the perks these guys get and as a kid we would ride our bikes up to the fire station and talk to the firemen and look at the trucks when the fire doors were open (most of the time they were open considering weather). Fire stations are like Fort Knox now. Check out the one in Irvine off Barranca. It looks like a prison and you cannot get inside without buzzing and being allowed in.
