This tiny borough is not grappling, they just spent over $160,000 on a trash truck, they just spent $60,000 on a tractor, they just gave all of the member of council and the mayor raises, the mayors raise was about $10,000 and in the same night they voted in the layoffs they voted to buy a brush chipper. They disregarded the sunshine law in NJ and also never gave out rice notices. The layoffs were done improperly and you will see later an injunction will stop the layoffs. News articles like this saying they are grappling with police layoffs make things sound like the borough doesn't have the money. They have it, they just don't use it properly.

It's a shame...especially in the scary world/desperate times we seem to currently be living in ~ where even small communities/once 'quiet and virtually crime free' suburbs are seeing an increase in all types of crimes...you'd think police forces would be the VERY last place cuts would be made, and only if all other alternatives had been explored/exhausted! I've seen an alarming increase in all types of crimes in my little rural farming community---it makes a person/citizen...ill-at-ease!

I think Chiselhurst as a whole should be laid off and removed from the face of the earth. What a shithole...!)

" Trash truck and other capital items purchased with debt to be paid over 10 years. Police cannot be paid through borrowing only though taxes. The Borough will have to greatly increase taxes for Borough residents by over 50% to pay the police current contract costs. The police contract costs need to be greatly reduced so residents can afford to live there. Makes you wonder why a Union County guy is interested in Chesilhurst"
