Even though the fire department has been gutted, reducing engines staffed from 2 or 3 to only one, eliminating all full time staff, and now farming out the one call a day dispatch service, City staff are consuming a larger and larger portion of the "fire department" budget.
Why is the city larding up, excuse me.. allocating, city staff costs onto the fire dept when they respond to only one call per day, on average, and are a pretty small department?
Interesting that the City "allocates" staff time for services like accounting onto the fire department, but when the fire dept incurs costs for oil well inspections, strike teams, etc, the city takes the revenue from them for those, but does not reimburse them for the expenses.
Could it be with the rejection of the pork barrel road tax, the City Council is betting the residents will vote for a higher fire tax regardless of how much waste is in it?

Not George, but what was an "allegation"?
All were known facts and/or in the budget or a special sheet handed out at the council meeting.
