[quote] This is the oldest trick in the book by Cities/Mayors. They ALWAYS play the cut police and firemen shite. That's older than the Earth has been a planet. [/quote] They always threaten to cut vital services, but they won’t bother many of the bureaucrats or special programs that we could p...

[quote] Fine - then stay out of BR, St George. Don't work there, and don't play there. They want the benefits of city living, and let someone else pick up the costs. Free riders and malingerers. [/quote] Only BR should have the benefits of city living. Shame on SG for wanting the same things....

re: Baton Rouge finally admits they are against St. G because they've used it as a slush fund - doubleb
[quote] You do realize that most fire departments are run by parishes/counties and not individual cities, right? It’s not a huge stretch for someone to think that BRFD was in control of fire protection for that area. No one insinuated that people in that area were “hicks” with “bucket brigades....

[quote] also, it's pretty shitty these cuts are being forced on parish offices like the DAs office. imagine the shortfall for the city if the parish services were left without decrease and only BR-city ones faced cuts [/quote] The article is bogus, SG had budget over 1.2 million dollars for the...

re: Baton Rouge finally admits they are against St. G because they've used it as a slush fund - doubleb
SG is paying for our FD, it’s not a class A dept., and to make BRFD class A. We are getting sued for wanting to stop the nonsense. Better Together is getting better and better definition. What it really means is BR is better with your money,...

[quote]Why can’t all the police and firefighters laid off by the creating of St. George just go work for the new police and fire departments that St. George will need?[/quote] SG is served by SGFD already. SG is served by the sheriff. We are fine thank you....

[quote]I guess there is a reason 50%+ of the streetlights are out in Jefferson Terrace and the potholes aren’t being fixed anymore. [/quote] It’s no difference in BR, Lighting isn’t fixed, streets don’t get striped and potholes aren’t addressed. Things get trashier and trashier as the govt. decay...

[quote] They are doubling down now. Warren Drake said no new schools will be built at all in the St. George area. [/quote] SG has approximately 86,000 citizens or approx 20% of the EBR population but we do not have close to 20% of the schools. I know many in SG elected to go the private s...

re: Baton Rouge finally admits they are against St. G because they've used it as a slush fund - doubleb
[quote]Sounds fair since StG is offering about 20% of the parish costs when they are one of five municipalities in the parish. Edit - 20% overall but about 39% of CP cost. [/quote] It appears St. George was overly generous. SG was putting up more than their fair share....
