KEEP THE SIRENS.
In city government there is essential spending and non-essential spending.
The emergency sirens are ESSENTIAL spending.
Saving lives is ESSENTIAL.
Senior citizens are the heart and soul of the City of Brookfield and deserve more consideration.
There are better ways to save money like reducing the size of the common council which i have proposed. That alone will pay for the sirens.
Senior Citizens have paid more property taxes and for a longer time than any other age group. They must be the first to be recognized.
As a Senior Citizen and a 38 year taxpayer i endorse keeping the sirens for the health, safety and welfare of my fellow seniors.
To keep the sirens just makes sense.
