So, we need to save money. How about some more ideas our VC could love

In Uncategorized on December 8, 2008 at 7:58 pm

A six day week – canceling 1 day could save us 1/7th of our costs. Nothing should happen on that day, nothing, just breathing. Just pick any day. I would go for Wednesday. It’s hard to spell anyway.

Rent space in our enormous Village Hall to other towns. C’mon, do we really need a palace THAT BIG just for us?

As mentioned above, NO 4th of JULY parade or holiday period. I mean, the nation’s birthday was sooo long ago.

Get rid of the VC and the BOE. We’ll save a lot of hot air that way and who knows what else.

Do we really need a town swimming pool? Get rid of Graydon and its subsidy; it’s a chemical laden toxic site anyway. Just think of how much we’ll save on insurance.

Cops should use horses. Hay is cheaper than gas.

School should only be 4 days a week. Less bad math to screw up our kids. Let the tutors parents hire fill in the gaps. They do that now anyway.

Let the Internet be our town library. Close the building down. Have all the library donations go into the now flush town fund.

Let’s get a blow up doll to be our superintendent. You think anyone will notice? Nah.

Ignore all state and federal mandates. That should save us a bundle. What are they going to do, invade?

Make divorce a 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 affair. Split everything equally between the husband, wife and town.

Kids are expensive, pay us a hefty fee if you want to have them.

  1. Cottage Place is closed. Wonder how much money that saved us.

  2. The churches in the Village should pay property taxes. It’ll raise much-needed revenues. Since this isn’t a theocracy, there’s no reason why us non-Christians should be subsidizing them anyway.

  3. amen to that 4:46

  4. All houses of worship are exempt not just those of Christian faith.

    What you propose is a violation of our constitution and the principles this nation was founded on.

  5. 4:46 and 5:51 there’s a little hurdle to your dream called the First Amendment. BTW, isn’t there some non-Christian, atheist country you could move to so that you don’t have to “subsidize” religion? Isn’t that what Communism was all about? So what if they tend to be murderous regimes. They might let YOU live. Find one. They still exist.

  6. Re: “The churches in the Village should pay property taxes. It’ll raise much-needed revenues.”

    But let’s not tax Valley Hospital… Let’s keep subsidizing them and sending our residents to Hackensack when they get hit by cars.

    Curious… I always understood that the “community service” was to be provided BY Valley Hospital to the residents in RETURN for the tax break… I never knew that the residents were providing the “community service” TO Valley hospital IN THE FORM OF a tax break.

  7. To 6:19PM –

    Re: “BTW, isn’t there some non-Christian, atheist country you could move to so that you don’t have to “subsidize” religion? Isn’t that what Communism was all about?”

    Why should I bother?
    I voted for Obama… I’m Hoping to Change this country to a non-Christian, atheist country and save myself the moving expenses.

  8. 6:19 – Isn't there a theocracy you should move to, instead of our great country which thankfully separates church & state?

  9. we dont need the fire dept at nite.

    I’m still trying to figure out why some here belief that the term “atheist” automatically translates to “hates Christians”.

  11. Our constitution guarantees a freedom of religion but not a freedom from religion.

  12. 1) Many Christian haters hide (and gather?) under the atheist banner.

    2) The attack was specifically against Christians (“Since this isn’t a theocracy, there’s no reason why us non-Christians should be subsidizing them anyway.”).
    It didn’t say non-religious.

    3) Many atheists have a proactive anti-Christian and anti-religion agenda (NOT just an “I don’t believe – You can believe” live-and-let-live attitude)

  13. “We don’t need the fire department at night.”?????????????? I didn’t know that fire and other emergencies had time slots.

  14. 1) Many atheist haters hide & gather under the Christian banner

    2) Christians frequently attack atheists ("Godless Americans"; cf Elizabeth Dole's attack ad)

    3) Many Christians have a proactice anti-atheist agenda (not just a live-and-let-live attitude)

  15. To 6:48,

    If you weren’t asleep at night you would know these things.

  16. What a WEIRD thread this has become!

  17. Does anyone think this Village is interested in saving money? One look at the colossal village hall answers that question.

    Does anyone think our village government and BOE care about its residents? Contrast the lavish village hall with the crumbling infrastructure of our schools and lowly maintained fields and you’ll have the answer to this question.

  18. Atheists are no longer happy with just not having God. To be happy, they want to impose their view on others. Atheism in recent years has morphed into a PAC whose goal is to uproot Christianity (primarily) and all other religions in America. They are no longer looking to practice their own beliefs. They are attempting to impose their beliefs on others and attempting to use the government to restrict religious freedom in America. This is the exact opposite of the promise of America… freedom to practice any religion (or not) without restriction or encumbrance.

    Today’s atheists want to impose a pseudo-theocracy where everyone bows to the “non-God”.
    There is a word for this…it’s called Fascism.

  19. I still want the Christmas Tree put back where it belongs, at the Train Station. I don’t care about the cost Mr. Ten Houve.

    I can’t believe Killian would be so foolish as to go along with this such a bad idea by our village manager. The savings is a pittance. What was he thinking?

  20. “Leftists love to rant about diversity – then seek to make others conform to their view of what’s good for the world.” Ralph Peters

    Merry Christmas! Peace and good will to all.

  21. Killian did this?

    What a dope!

  22. killian wake up real fast or you will be gone.are you thinking.i hope so pal,1 the tree no good.2the parking 3 hummmmmmmmmmmm.

  23. Killian killed our tradition. It has a sickening rhyme to it.

  24. Killian killed our tradition

    Don’t let Zuzy off the hook that easily… this was a team effort.
