Somebody has to pay for that sweet contract they gave the well deserving chief of police. Next time you see his good pals Zabroski, Sniscak, DeMarco, etc. thank them. Rumor is that Zabroski andd Sniscak will try and return to council after getting beat the last election. Make sure you vote them back in so they can continue to give the chief more.

Chief Smith does a great job and deserves a raise. He protects us and our children. The DARE program he does was so informative to my child. Learning what not to do helps our future. Awesome job Chief Smith!!

Hey I was agreeing. I think Chief Smith deserves everything he gets plus. The DARE program alone seems to be worth the hefty raise last year. Information is priceless. Learning what not to do sure beats learning what to do.

The money is actually for the rainy day fund to pay the legal bills, when Mickey gets back on council. Look at how much PVSD legal bills have gone up since he joined.

Maybe they couldd save some money by getting rid of somwe of those 8 crossing gaurds they have.
i can see them needing them on the highway, but not in front of the school. Why aren't the bus stops only on the side streets?
why do they pick up the trouble maker kids at their houses instead of making their parent drop them all off at the jail, since they'll be visiting them down there in the future, they might as well learen where its at.
