What is BUCK thinking. The village citizens have paid higher costs every year and they take away crap from the citizens constantly. Their bad choices in the recent years have them where they are. They are trying to tell the citizens that they need to pay the employees more, who is he trying to pull the wool over. There is no reason to give such high raises to keep them. Only one has been there for many years, and they recently cut her hours. The other recently came into the village after their long time clerk was fired after they set her up. I dont have any negative comments to state about the new clerk at all, but I sure feel that if they feel she deserves a raise, it should not be in this way. Buck is fairly new to the board as well, to be demanding such actions. The part timers employees are only part time because of the boards already made cuts. These people have just as much right to keeping there jobs and getting raises. MJybe BUCK and the rest of the board should give all their village funds back to the village instead of taking the money they claim the village is so desperately in need of. The village president just took a raise this year too, os last year. Maybe they all need to quit taking what they say the village needs. They should be working for the village free. The hours they give to the town are because they volunteered to do this. No one forced them to put their names on teh ballots. I have said this for many years. Maybe they should not worry about getting in debt over replacing a squad with a new truck they do not need as well. They are worried about appearance , not the needs of the community.
