Tax dollars at work

By HH 
The new xmas tree on the lake was paid for out of the public works budget. the cost? 12000 dollars. yes twelve thousand dollars. used for a christmas tree in a predominantly Jewish town. Lakewood taxpayer dollars being wasted once again. imagine what good things could have been bought with that money. guys. its time to go. please stop allowing our money to be wasted ,so you can keep playing your little games

  1. well they charge 1000.00 if somebody puts out some bulk trash without having called for pick up or a day earlier/later....so seems they have funded the tree with the most insane charge for what should be a phone call reminding you that you should please call public works to pick up your stuff, and maybe even just give people a break and pick it up anyway if they forgot to call. Let's just be a friendly town !

  2. Harold, why don't we just threaten to sue the town unless they take down the Xmas trees?

  3. HH, can you provide a source for this inforamtion? IIRC, there is a sign below the tree saying that it is sponsered by retired firefighters or something like that...

  4. No.it came out of the public works budget. You can do an Opra request if you wish. I wouldn't wipe the taxpayers. Money to pay for a menorah and I don't expect it to go for this either. It should have been sponsored. In the end they don't care as long as they can get theirs, and we end up losing double. Meir and Menashe, I can't wait till the next township meeting.
