No, you are not alone. I am working with others to minimize wasteful spending. Let there be noRead Mored oubt, the 3rd party reports confirm that we need a new police facility. The only question is the size. Will it rival the new village hall (75,000 sf) or will it be something much smaller and cost effective? And what size police force do we need? This is a question that will impact our taxes for years. If you'd like to join this group, please write me at rruffatto@aol.com

I'm all for maintaining the Village's infrastructure. However, I question the need for a top ofRead Morethe line facility which I'm sure PD will get. I also question the space and staffing needs. One thing is for sure…they can offset some of the facility costs by selling the squad car turn signals and brakes. Many of our cops don't use their turn signals nor fully stop at stop signs. I urge you all to document and report these instances to supervisors at PD.

Great comment about turn signals and brakes. Some of the new Trustees have promised to avoid the Read Moremistakes that created the massive, over-built and costly village hall. Even some involved now admit that it was a mistake. Lets hope that they find a way to incorporate unused VH space into a modern new facility on the current site. That would show a real commitment to saving taxpayer dollars.
