This is for all the contract and POC/Part timers that feel a need to bash each other here. Remember a few facts here...1) There are presently 5/6 members that were POC's that have now joined the contract. 2) Most of the initial contract people were also part timers; we lost out on income also. 3) Until the BOARD OF TRUSTEES changed things, we all worked side by side, and for the most part worked well with each other. 4) We all must complete the same state/national training/schooling. 5) Most of us started as a POC or part-timer somewhere, did that make us any less then a full time or a full time union firefighter at that time?...NO
I feel that I can still call a majority of the POCs my friend and know that they would have my back.
Please remember one other thing...Once the POC's win there court case and are back on the job, we will once again have to work together. The damage done here will not just disappear once we are all working together on shift again.
My final thought is this...Leave the past in the past (i.e.: the wheelchair bound firefighter). There will always be people who are going to look for something to complain about, especially when you are in the public eye.
I encourage all the fireman and their loved ones to stop posting ugly hurtfull things on here.
LOL Leave New Lenox with all the scraps??? What a joke. I would like to see why most of the guys have not been hired already?? We are losing good people and this is what I pay TAXES for???

Who wrote this...a second grader? Cival is spelled civil. The sentence structure is so poorly written we cannot discern what you are trying to say. YOU sound so ignorant. I hope you are not a fire fighter! Yikes!

I just heard a great one. The President of the NLFD (Brad Veerman) will resign his position on the board to take a fulltime paid job as the Lincolnway Dispatch Center Assstant Director. WOW!!! Now he can stop the dispatchers from getting a union and fire all of them. How sad is this.. The politics in New Lenox are really starting to become a mini Chicago.
Its funny he left there to run a dispatch center and he has no clue on how to run anything including his family ..Its a conflict of interest hes a cop and he helps run the center that dispatches his police dept..what a joke

Can you say political connection, but don,t worry big kid, Lincolnway dispatch is going to fade off in the distance when the new county 911 centers open up and then BV can get a job at the malt shop or driving a taxi

Just answer the questions?? I hope you are not a Fireman?? This is not about you!! This is about the issues that know one has answered!!!!!

We all know the town is growing and taxes are going to go up but, is the money being managed correctly now. Is it going to be squandered?
Questions:
1)How much has Station 1 been costing the taxpayers? MILLIONS YES
2)The property north of town was to be bought years ago. Go back in the minutes from the Trustees. Now it will cost Millions more again??
3)What Trustee stated he did not want a referendum to raise Taxes?? BOB
4)Is and was LABOR laws violated?:)
5) Why was the Chief Stedmen fired and not Swanson for the same thing?
6)We need to clean house in other areas before taxpayers will support any referendums.
7) You say that it is better for Kurtz/contract to be there? Why don't we have the run it ? We can trim all the upper fat off and sell all the bulidings?? The other towns must not know New Lenoxs seceret?????

NL is giving 2.2 million $ per year for contractual 911 services??!! OUCH!!! That sounds way over what other services are charging a village with the same population,# of stations. Sounds like Karl's got his hand/s in someone's pockets. I worked at Kurtz ( 1 ) day, never went back! They made us take 2 black garbage bags full of towels & sheets used after an embalming from the funeral home down to the laundry mat in NL. DISGUSTING! I called the State after that. In my opinion they have NO business running an Ambulance service, municipal or private!

Just wait, I hear that a long time member with lots of cash and 0 political connections is waiting for a shot. Everyone in town respects this man and if he gets in the nonsense is going to stop. He cannot be bought and will do whats best for the people.
