Merger Mania

Contrary to what the genetically engineered super fireman Jus Sayin spit out on the Harrison Board, a merger of the Kearny and Harrison fire clubhouses is inevitable. The 25 man Harrison clubhouse only has like 5 fireman and the rest are Captain and up. Due to seniority, they would bump many Kearny Captains back to fireman. The combined Harrison/Kearny Dept. should be limited to a total of 80 firemen due to lack of productivity and Kearny saving money because they are currently headed to the poor house just like Harrison.

The mainly layed off Kearny underachievers would be out on their butts with no recourse other than to beg which they do very well. That begging will be as effective as the carnival they put on in Trenton when the Governor shot them down financially. Jus Sayin lead the charge last time so he can get as much success this time.

The 80 boy combo dept. would eventually be phased out to all volunteer after a few years because a "defensive attack" coined by Harrison in which everybody retreats to a safe distance and sqirts water on whatever it is, say a lit cigarette, can be accomplished by even the dullest pencil in the box. This savings of at least $10 million a year could used to strengthen many other financial strapped concerns the towns have.

Ambulance calls can be handled by a private company at a fraction of the current cost to the town and the residents. This plan should start on January 1, 2012.

Guest You Must be crzy

You really need to do some research before you spew your rants next time. A Kearny / Harrison merger is not in the works per the Mayor. You should read the Observer every once in awhile. It is free and can be found around town. You might have to drive in from your shelter in the woods. As far as the volunteer dept, have you ever volunteered? Served your community? I am guessing not. It is probably safe to say that if the towns went to volunteer fire depts you would not be seen on the fire ground but seen complaining about the response time. You have a issue with a dept, thats fine. However there is a remedy for your issue, its called STAND UP and Bring a REAL solution to the table. If not please continue to entertain everyone with your rants. Because that is all you are entertainment. Just like a clown.

I wonder why a smart guy like Barney has never been promoted. He's remained a patrolman in spite of all

his vast knowledge of how to save the town money.

Concerning merging the Kearny & Harrison Fire Departments, where's the loss in that? The combined towns pay approx. $13 million a year to put out maybe 4 legit fires. $3 million to put out a fire on a house worth $200k. The Mayor said no merger and the Observer is a credible news reporting source. Has your brain taken a vacation? You are taking the word of a Hudson County Politician and relying on the Observer. It's almost impossible that someone is that naive and I will take that as a poor attempt at a joke. Believe or not, but you cannot ignore it. Paid Fire Departments in these small towns are not going to be around for long. Cities like NY, Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken, Los Angeles and on need paid fire depts. due to vertical problems and populations. When times were good these small town fire depts. thrived because nobody watched the money. They are a commodity, not a necessity. Like Dollarhan said, he is the last paid chief the Harrison FD will ever see and he might as well have been speaking for the other West Hudson towns also.

In Kearny, they still have a chance to stop this FD nonsense to avoid being Harrison #2 in Hudson County if they act now. The KFD guys know terminations are on the way and no little pay cuts or union busting comp. time is gonna save anybody. When you agreed to comp. time you showed the Councils that they can push you around all they want. You say it was to save jobs, but weakness shines thru actions like that. Maybe Kearny should bond for a stadium? Yeah, that's the ticket!

Officer Barney likes to spread his (wisdom) all over the Harison and Kearny boards, you really have to watch where you step. He's good for a laugh though, Barney puts Weehawken and Hoboken on the same par with Los Angeles and New York. Not even close Barney.
