City of Kingston has problems. Here is one solution.
Let's be specific. Cut the Kingston Fire Dept. budget in half from $8 Million to $4 Million over 3 years by using paid Firemen to drive the fire trucks and volunteers to ride the trucks. Look at what a wonderful Volunteer Fire Dept. the Town of Ulster has in Ulster Hose. There is no shortage of volunteer firemen and women at Ulster Hose, because these volunteers are welcomed and appreciated by the Town of Ulster. To the Kingston Common Council, Let's get to work on this idea.
