So THAT'S How It Works
- Everyone keeps asking "where's all the money going?". Here's a little inside on that. The department is counting in ALL wages from the officers that go to training and taking it from the $56 million. This includes 1day training, 3day training, refresher training, as well as the salaries that they are paying the trainers for doing the training.
From that $56 million kitty they are also subtracting Kirby and Stevie G's salary and ANY overtime and expenses related to training those two.They have both flown out of town for "meetings" and other g8 related stuff. That's right, all paid for out of the kitty. (Also anybody attending any sort of G8 related meeting)
It's nothing but a way to siphon from the kitty and return unused budgeted salary money back to the city's general budget to be used as the mayor sees fit (ie Corp incentives for his friends)
THAT'S why there isn't any money left for the equipment.
Makes sense to us. Another example is the millions the city got to hire "transit officers." The money is spent training up the current class of recruits, then upon graduation, the city opens up bidding to Mass Transit and sends the recruits to districts. Same basic concept.
