Payroll’s Risin’

I wonder if this was factored into the projected cost of the Como deal.


Also: New entry on “SUMMER 2016” page.

    Lt. Thonmas Cox is nothing more than a political pawn. Not worth his office and he is only getting a raise because he will do exactly what Colleen Connolly dictates. Another sad day for this Borough.

    Is anyone retiring or leaving? This is not NYC you only need one captain. Hold onto your wallets, something is fishy. There should be 4 platoons, each with one supervisor a Sgt or Lt. Anyone shed light on this??

    Well, if Matt had done the RIGHT THING in having a Police Staffing Survey done by an independent firm several months ago as requested (when the whole merger with Lake Como fiasco began) we would know exactly how our PD should be structured. Without that, Matt can continue on, nilly willy, handing out favors with strings attached. The only righteous act was hiring Nicole, who by the way was almost passed over when Matt handed out favors in the hiring of two of the soon to be laid off Lake Como Officers, before the merger plans were even made public. And no, two captains are not needed. And are there any Lts. being made? Seems like a major re-structuring with little or no justification other than Matt taking care of Buddies.

    Two Captains ???
    You only need 1 to replace the Chief in his absence. This just a back door move to line Tina up to be the next Chief of Police. Mark my words! Guaranteed!
    Who is getting promoted to Lieutenant then to replace them? What ever happened to the 5 officers they needed to hire for the Como deal?
    Oh Wait !…… Overtime $$$$$

    Think about this…
    Why would you promote two Captains if you only need one? One Lieutenant is obviously senior (Cox) to the other one (Tina). Why make two Captains then? Because they would be considered equal and then Tina can be promoted over Cox! The Chief therefore gets his pet promoted when he retires! Wake up and open your eyes Belmar, see the truth.

    Of course the police in our town are overpaid, but it doesn’t matter who leads them. It might as well be the woman as any of the other rabble on the force. I’m sure she’s just as unable to do the job as they are.

    This is Matt’s plan of Divide and Conquer. It is pretty sad a town cant afford a police dept due to mismanagement.
