Did anyone get a chance to view the last City Council meeting where the 5 stooges decided they knew more than the police Chief and eliminated 2 positions? What have we gotten ourselves into? Besides trying to take over management of the City (not their job) they are very, very disrespectful towards each other and are an embarrassment to Geneva. I feel sorry for the members of council that do seem to be open and try to do the right thing. These 5 either don't have a clue or they have an agenda.

Perhaps you'd care to enumerate your list of five? Others may have a different list.

Did you watch the council meeting?

The city website has the video

YouTube has the video

The five would most likely be the five council members that voted to eliminate the two positions

Your post is so politically slanted I got dizzy reading it.

Geneva has a problem with high taxes. When city council tries to reduce staffing in an effort to reduce said taxes, the same people who typically complain about the taxes pitch fits. It happened when they cut the city's 911 center in favor of using the county's - as every other city in the area does - and it happens now as they reduce two police officer positions, a reduction that will bring GPD in line with others in the area.

Seems some of the locals don't mind paying high taxes after all. Remember that you said that it's not city council's job to manage the city the next time you try to complain about the city. And stop complaining about the taxes here but demanding city residents be allowed to pay extra for more officers, a dedicated 911 center, etc. - taxes aren't bad if they're offering things that you like about the city you live in. The taxes in Geneva are fitting for the premium services we love.

Comparing police staffing in Geneva or any other town/city with another is like comparing apples to BBQ. It depends on the police activity and type of activity.

I'm less concerned about the tax bill to me personally compared to the message it sends to businesses that might want to locate in the city but choose the town instead - who can blame theme?
