In a letter, Rye resident Bill Bryson says there should not be any Rye City "company cars". What do you think? Leave a comment below.
Acceptable use of Rye taxpayer dollars?
I have had enough. For years I have commuted on the road to NYC and NJ paying for my car, car insurance, and gas. And time and time again I would see a "Rye Fire Department" SUV driving in as well. Years ago I thought it an anomaly thinking my taxes couldn't possibly be paying for someone else's commuting. But after countless trips and countless sightings I have come to find this a regular commuting practice. After tailing SUV 2422 I have come to discover this is the truck of one of the Chiefs and he uses it to drive to and from work. Considering that this is not done in secret or with any attempt to hide his affiliation with the RFD, I have to assume that this either the dumbest criminal mis-use of city property OR approved by the mayor and city hall and an accepted use of my hard earned tax dollars.
1) Is this the dumbest Chief in the history of RFD?
2) Is this an acceptable use of our taxes?
Everyone is hurting, trying to keep their jobs, trying to pay bills, and taxes keep going up. How could this possibly be acceptable? I for one see this as a blatant misuse of my hard earned money. Some light needs to be shined on how we are spending money at City Hall and clearly the Fire Department. I am optimistic that this will come up at the next city council meeting and we can get some answers.
