Raises preposterous

May 16, 2012

(In response to: ‘Village employee pay hike included in 2012-13 budget,’ The Citizen, May 5, page 5)

Dear Editor,

The lack of fiscal responsibility on the part of the village manager, Jakki Sidge, in asking for a pay raise for village employees, and the condoning of it by the village council, is just another example of our tax dollars being squandered.

Our property values have hit rock bottom and we can’t afford this village manager and her cronies on the village council.

It is preposterous and arrogant of them to even consider it. And they wonder why many of us are sick and tired of their irresponsible handling of our tax dollars. Why wouldn’t anyone want to detach from them?
