Does anyone know if the village board or the dpw that gets to take paid 30-40 minute breakfast breaks at the wagner, morgans or elsewhere on the taxpayers dime even have a long range plan for fixing up these awful streets in the village?
If they do and they paved Pleasant ave. before more heavily travelled, not to mention more inhabited streets like Hamilton, Seneca, Sheppard, Ogden et al, then they have their priorities upside down and they need an overhaul from top down.
Get with it MAYOR, BOARD, DPW and quit wasting village tax dollars on paid breakfast breaks to which they also have to drive to and from wherever in the village they are working. A short 15-20 minute coffee break like the rest of the world gets is one thing but paid breakfast time? really, where else in the real world does that happen? Only at the good ole boys py dpw club, all endorsed and approved by the MAYOR, ENTIRE BOARD and DPW director and their public works chairman!
add it up folks -- 4 men at a conservative $23/hr. with bennies = $92/hr x 40 minutes (incl. drive time to & fro) x 5 days a week x 52 weeks a year = $16,026 per year!! you can probably double or even triple that amount when you add in the water and electric guys. What a huge waste of tax dollars. How can the mayor, board, public works chair and dpw director allow that to happen? how can WE let that happen?
this isn't about the guys/gals doing the actual work - They do good work with what they're given to work with and it's not their fault, it's about the mayor, the entire board and the leadership being asleep at the wheel and not minding the cash register that they are charged with minding
