March 22, 2012

Newton’s proposed new fire station headquarters moved closer to reality this week after city council members reserved fire department funding in the coming year’s budget.

Newton City Council approved $100,000 to be used toward engineering and design for the new fire headquarters in the 2012-13 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) budget.

Newton Mayor Anne Stedman also created a Fire Station Review Committee that will examine possible properties to house the new headquarters.

a. Would the Gentleman Editor please elaborate and advise just who or whom makes up the Fire Station Review comittee? (Just want to make sure there are no conflicting interest?

b. WHY oh WHY cant the City Ouncil handle these ONEROUS duties? Why do they have to appoint a committee to do what they are supposed to do?

c. I CAN TELL YOU WHY, 'cause they want to get re-elected, and they know that this reckless spending will be JOB #1 in the next election! Bette to Fob the responsibility off tto some nebulous "Committee" and not have to dirty their hands!

THIS IS FREAKIN PREPOSTEROUS! I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT! YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER! IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO DO THEIR JOBS AS ELECTED LEADERS, THAN RESIGN AND PUT SOMEONE IN WHO WILL! SPINELESS SPINELESS SPINELESS!
