Guest Barney Posted August 17, 2016 Report Share Posted August 17, 2016 It is shocking that the Kearny taxpayers are being taken for $11,000,000.00 a year to support a 100 member Fire Department. Harrison is no better at over $3,000,000.00 for 29 Firefighters. What a waste of money! It's outrageous! $200,000.00/year for the Fire Chief alone! The majority do not live in town, send their children to the local school system or spend money in town. They do not interact with or contribute to the community in any way. The Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas toy drives are a sad publicity stunt. They are one direction: TAKERS! Kearny or Harrison could easily get able bodied RESIDENTS to sleep at the Clubhouse for $15 an hour without benefits. Anyone can occasionally squirt a water hose on a house from a safe distance as is the current FD policy. The qualifications are a High School Diploma or G.E.D. and a heartbeat. The patronage and nepotism, friends & family Fire Department scam is wiping out residents pockets and savings to fund the lavish lifestyle of the rich Firefighters. What a disgrace!!
