You are correct:) But that is okay. It is okay if I never work the shift again. Just so you know the issues are going to be coming out in the paper and in court. The tax payers will know the truth. It is not about a job!!!! It is what we pay our taxes for and how it is being handled across the board from all. I do not think you really know the amount of political people evolved on the side lines waiting??

what's going on now? Is this the trustee that resigned because he was a union guy himself and his union was going to disown him because he wouldn't let the POC's form a union? Or is this about the new chief's dad being Trustee Fronek's boss at some fire safety company? Is that true? Interesting.....

Today I read that Trustee President Brad Verman will be at Village Hall July 12th 5pm-7pm along with other Village leaders. This is to let the public know what they are doing with their part in the community. It will be a good time to ask other leaders to question President Verman some important questions that will affect the Taxpayers.

THATS NICE TO KNOW MIKE. MAYBE A FEW OF THE UNION BOYS WOULD LIKE TO STOP BY THAT NIGHT AND SAY HI. I AM SURE THE PRESIDENT OF THE SEIU WOULD LOVE TO HEAR HIM SPEAK. BE NICE IF EVERYONE STOPPED BY TO SEE THE RAT MOBILE AND SCABBY AS LONG AS THEY ARE IN TOWN. REMIND MR VEERMAN THAT THE MAJORITY OF NEW LENOX VILLAGE EMPLOYEES ARE UNION AND HE WOULD BE GOING INTO A UNION WORK SHOP WHILE UNDER SUSPENSION FROM HIS OWN UNION WHICH WILL BE NOTED BY EVERY UNION MEMBER PRESENT.

Will any of this make the papers? In an honest fashion?
Why did they get rid of a retired chicago battallion chief for some young guy from a small suburb? What in the world were the trustees thinking? Makes no sense? As a taxpayer, I got more bang for my buck from the Chicago guy. I want a safe department that has experience in its leadership roles, not some guy who barely made it through probation! Trustees...you are accountable to ME as a taxpayer and I WANT/DESERVE wnswers!!! If my house burns down due to inadequacy, or heavin forbid, someone dies this village won'te have enough money to deal with the lawsuit! Liability people, ever heard of it?

Hey Confused, Mr. inexperiance has already put a few New Lenox homes on the ground, go ask the family at 700 praire why it took 13 other departments to put out their fire and when it was over they had a rubbish pile. What a tragic thing to stand and watch, Until Manhatten and East Joliet and Frankfort got there New Lenox looked like fools. I have lived here 54 years and that never would have happend if Ken Hossack, George Ellis or Ed Faulk was running the show. it was no schoolboy error, the trustees hired the wrong guy and we as taxpayers are at risk. As a person who spent 38 years in the insurance and public risk industry I can tell you that it is only a matter of time before the board of trustees and the new fire chief will be responsible for a loss of life, then you will be held responsible for your actions in a court of law. You had better listen to folks like Confused, He pays your wages and I am quite sure that folks like him are watching your every move.

I just found out something I cannot even think is true. The fire stations are staffed by people from Kurtz Ambulance, where are our volunteers, is it true that they were forced out of the door by the board of trustees ? I would not even think of calling Kurtz and now I am forced to let these people in my home during an emergency. sorry, grew up here, didnt like Kurtz when he started, dont like him now. these stupid trustees cant run a popcorn wagon.

Wendy...of course Kurtz contract people are manning our fire houses...the owner of Kurtz is connected to the trustees too. I don't think people realize this town's utter safety is at severe risk because of all the behind the scenes garbage going on. There are already lawsuits regarding this situation and your tax dollars will go to defend these very people screwing things up.

yeah, and its the job of the cops or sheriff not some hard up fire chief to enforce the law. morons are the scourge of society and he is one. and oh by the way that was him putting gas in his cruiser down at amoco with a lit smokey treat in his lips.

I SEE IN THE JOLIET PAPER THAT THE ATTORNEY FOR THE NEW LENOX FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS MADE A STATEMENT. MR GILBERTS STATEMENT " WE DONT KNOW IF THEY WILL GET SHIFTS OR EVEN BE PAID ON CALL" WAS A LITTLE PREMEDITATED AND STUPID. YOU WOULD THINK HE WOULD HAVE KEPT HIS MOUTH SHUT. ON THE OTHER HAND THE UNION PRESIDENT DID NOT MAKE ANY OFF THW WALL REMARKS AND LIMITED HIS STATEMENTS TO THE PRESS. GOOD JOB AND HATS OFF TO AL. GILBERT YOU HAVE THE BRAINS OF A FRENCH FRY.

This is all beyond ridiculous. If any company were run so haphazardly, they would be out of business in a week. Taxpayers are shareholders and we demand 1) answers from the shenanigans of the past board and current board and 2) how do I know my tax dollars are buying the best fire protection/service? from what I read on these boards, it is far from it. Get your act together people...NOW! When will the local papers print about what is going on here???

I understand that you the trustees are now paying Kurtz Ambulance service 2.2 million for there services. That is a considerable amount more than you payed the payed on call firefighters. And I now read in your local paper you need more money no wonder when you are paying that much to Kurtz. And 98% of the kurtz employees don't pay taxes or live in new lenox.

I came home to find a propaganda letter from the fire department in my mail box. what a smoke screen. the entire thing was an ego trip from the new fire dept chief and was done at tax payer expense and no I am not a firemen or paramedic but I do pay taxes and live in nl. I also support union labor. how can you kick out the people who have carried you for years and live here and replace them with a wise guy punk and his contract band of scab labor. your new fire chief sounds like nothing but a used car salesmen and I would not buy anything he is trying to sell. as for your the board of trustees and kurtz ambulance you can all go jump off a cliff. let the guys in town who live here and pay their tax dollar toward what they built do what they are trained to do. you gotta be crazy to expect the firemen to be happy after you walked all over them and kicked them out of their own house.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT MR VEERMAN WAS RELATING TO IN THE LINCOLNWAY SUN ABOUT THE NEWS MEDIA GIVING THE FIRE DEPARTMENT A BLACK EYE. THIS BLACK EYE STARTED WITH THE FIRE DEPARTMENT TOP BRASS GOOFING THINGS UP FOR THEIR OWN LIKING AND SCREWING A BUNCH OF FIREMEN AND ALL OF THE TAXPAYERS ALL OF WHICH RELATES TO POLITICAL PAYBACKS AND WHO SLEEPS WITH WHO. GIVE A TRUSTEES BUDDYS KID A JOB AS CHIEF, GIVE YOUR FRIEND FROM AN AMBULANCE COMPANY A CONTRACT FOR 2.2 MILLION. YOU SOUND LIKE A BUNCH OF CHEAP HOODS.
