Chico Tea Party meeting Tuesday 2/25/14 @ 7pm, Marie Callender restaurant at 1910 20th Street (at the Chico Mall)
“Fire Department Status and open questions with Bill Hack Division Chief Chico Fire”
Learn about the $5.3M Grant that just past City Council.
Sheesh, there’s just not enough time in the day to bitch about stuff. NO, I’m not happy about the new grant for the fire department. First of all, that’s our money – why don’t people get that? Second, we don’t need more stupes in boots to sit down at the fire station breathing their own farts or endangering our lives using their sirens to run stop lights. And, last but hardly least – when this grant runs out, they will kick and scream that they need more funding from the city to pay the extra guys they hired with the grant.
We’ve been here before – who keeps eating the bread crumbs? The city of Chico just keeps running in the same circles.
I will not have a chance to attend, but these meetings are open to the public. I’d recommend being on time, they usually have an interesting program for 20 minutes or so, and then the speaker is given the floor, and will accept questions from the general audience. Also, they open the room at 5:30 for dinner, I believe, if you want to make an evening of it. The wait staff there is very professional, and you can have drinks during the program. Please be sure to tip nice, these guys and gals work hard on their feet all day.
Thanks for doing this Tea Party! In future I will try to remember to post all their events, sorry to be so slow to get this up.
