New Firefighters a Waste of Money

Kearny has so many problems with quality of life issues and blows $1.5 million on nepotism/patronage no work Firefighters who don't and won't live in Kearny. That whopping $1.5 million, which only covers ONE year, could have been better spent. The residents are sure to see a sharp tax increase for the next 25 to 30 years for these part-time employees. This is a great deal of money that goes from the residents pockets and straight out of town. How much of this exorbitant salary cash will be spent in Kearny and help the local economy? My guess is little to none.

Wait until they get the Safer grant. after you accept it you get lower the number of firefighters ( LOL ), or you have to repay the money that you received. Crazy, let's see if we can buy more beds on Labor Day weekend sale. Moving as soon as I can get someone to buy my house, and tell them that the taxes aren't too high.

has any one else noticed that this idiot put his name as Feed up tax payer when it should be Fed up tax payer??

It's the same dude who posts under 20 different names complaining about the Fire Dept both here and in the Harrison Forum. At least the Cop-hater who does the same thing has a consistent name

Who cares WHO posts what? The fact is that none of the newly appointed Fire wimps will be living in Kearny for more than a year. Another fact is that none of the new white mens welfare Fire Dept. job recipients are African American. The towns population is rapidly shifting towards African American and Hispanic but these people are being treated as second class. The Kearny Fire Dept. and Harrison Fire Dept. are almost 100% white males which strongly indicates racial bias. ALL FIREFIGHTERS SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO LIVE, SEND THEIR KIDS TO SCHOOL, AND PATRONIZE THE LOCAL MERCHANTS FOR THEIR ENTIRE 25 YEAR VACATION. The State of NJ is going to inact that change when Christie's gone so get ready to move BACK to West Hudson. #BLACKLIVESMATTER

Barney is back again with his same old nonsense. I thought he would have gotten over failing the FF exam by now. Who knew?

I guess this dumb dumb didn't do much research because Im pretty sure ther not only hired a black man but also a hispanic man. Keep hating stupid...

This Idiot has been spamming this forum ( and Harrison's) for years with this same Nonsense......Apparently he wants Volunteer Departments for both towns...here's the problem though. Kearny Couldnt field a Volunteer Ambulance....ONE AMBULANCE with a Crew of Two Reliably from 6pm-6am M-F and on Weekends...which is why there is No Longer a KVES. In this area there just inst the spirit of Volunteerism that exists in other areas of NJ..the poster is always rather silent about whether or not he would step up and be a Volunteer Firefighter however. It's rather amusing since the same posters have been trying to push a rift bewteen Fire and Police, at least on this forum for years now, and it just Pisses them off that we actually work pretty well together.

Police and firefighters are always a good investment.

I do believe police & firefighters should live in the town they work for.

The community will be safer having more & knowing that a lot of the cops/firefighters live in the town.

NO but the Taxpayers should have some say since we do pay them.....

NO. The mayor and administrator determine the needs of the town, and hire accordingly. That's what they're paid to do.

The days of FIREFIGHTERS living out of town is coming to an end very soon. More municipalities are adopting it than ever before in a domino effect. It's sad and arrogant that overpaid egocentric FIREFIGHTERS think they are better than the citizens paying their outrageous salaries and benefits. Does anyone know how many Kearny and Harrison FIREFIGHTERS live where they get there $2000.00 a week from?
