Dryden City CAO reporting to City Council tonight that the new model at the fire service isn’t costing Dryden anything, but that is far from what the spreadsheet states.
The report boasts that they are $39,000 under budget but doesn’t say this year’s budget is $118,000 higher than last years for the first 3 months! Its very concerning that they had a $30,000 increase in their Salaries/Wages budget even though staffing wasn’t supposed to change.
This line has ballooned an additional $17,000 above that with the paid members. They were accounted for long before they were even here, just further proof that the Fire Chief had all of us targeted from the start.
Just another piece of evidence how calculated this move was to remove the volunteers that had 355 years of combined experience and replace them with new recruits. The evidence continues to pile up.
