    Just put Leon/lausdeo and Tedc on the case and they will fix everything (as long as it was the mayor or the city manager's fault that is).

    Too bad the GOP majority on Rye city council doesn't have the stones to make the cuts that Rye Town is doing . We have highest taxes in United States in Westchester and i see little we get in return that people in other states with 1/3 the tax bill get .

    CUT HEADCOUNT . DEMAND REMAINING WORKFORCE WORK HARDER TO JUSTIFY THEIR BLOATED PAYCHECKS / GOLD PLATED PENSIONS THAT NOBODY IN PRIVATE SECTOR GETS BUT WE'RE EXPECTED TO PAY FOR!!!!!!!

    Anybody recall the days when Rye management bragged about holding tax increases to less than CPI ? Wave good bye to that one ..... now they just announce whatever increases they want and claim its 'low' .......

    We are a walking talking fiscal disaster . But maybe French is on to something with issuing bonds to fix things like roads .

    Why not .

    Lets be like Democrats in Congress and White House and just borrow whatever money fools are willing to lend to us while we can . Hell , anybody with abrain knows NY state and its local governments are dead so why not .

    Lets max out the credit card and go crazy . After all ,w hen Yonkers and New Rochelle and others start coughing up blood and default , you can bet rest of NY towns will get cut off from borrowing .

    So lets be like the 47% that pay nothing in taxes and just run up the credit cards . Why not . Morons lending money to Rye or NY state deserve what they will get .

    Nothing .

    Even lovers of huge government and more borrowing like Richard Ravitch warned NY yesterday its finances are a house of cards and that with the insane public union pensions and benefits promises made , NY can't possibly meet its future liabilities .

    So go for it Doug French . Lets see how much muni debt we can run up . Hell , lets pave all the streets and make ourselves look real pretty while we can . Why worry about our kid's futures . Live for the day . Max out the credit cards and spend away .

    By the way , Doug . How about we cancel all property taxes and just start borrowing the money instead . Why force us all to pay into a bankrupt system . You'll have my vote in next election !

    “Recently, City Manager Scott Pickup, and Corporation Counsel Kristen Wilson, announced that the Rye Police Department had been conducting–and would continue to conduct–an investigation into the events surrounding the suspension of RGC's general manager, Scott Yandrasevich.

    Now, five weeks later, LD10580 has learned–according to public records pried from the city manager's hands–that Rye Police Commissioner William Connors Jr. had personally signed off on a $250K purchase order for RM Staffing just last year.”
