Roger is not overpaid for what he does for this village. He is doing the work of 2-3 people that were let go through attrition.

Anybody know why Village did this and why fire dept was listed first? Had to be politics as usual even though this info is available to the public.

How about the trustees? Family Insurance, travel, expense accounts, cell phones and wink winks? How about payments/stipends to all of the committee and board members of the village? Most of them are already on the village dole as it is.
