Smoke from Four Peaks Fire alarms Tonto Basin June 25, 2016
What happened to voters and taxpayers being allowed to talk at town council meetings and council members not being able to finsih talking?
Just finished watching the meeting and seems the people making up the budget don't really know what it is going to cost to hire contractors to do the Fire Marshall's job. Seems they should have had thier act together before the meeting. Why does the town mananger need so many assistants? Maybe since they are doing her work she could leave and save the town $150,000 or more.
The firemen have enough responsibility without cross training them any more.
Most of them are already cross trained to a point.
Surrounding fire districts have nothing to do concerning the budget.
The cost of possibly sending a current staff member on the Fire Department for further training and schooling was not brought up either. I would assume that will not be cheap. Also if they are counting on the State Fire Marshal to come up here and make an inspections on buildings: that business or institution will go on a list and have to wait their turn. I wonder how many people are going to start screaming and filing complaints about not being able to do business because they are waiting for an inspection. Our Town Council and Mayor took our town backwards by not just a step but by a large leap.
