Commissioner Xavier Suarez Uncovers Too Many Chiefs Making Big Bucks. By Geniusofdespair
Earlier this week I complained about the tax hike proposed by Mayor Gimenez. Maybe it is time to take a good look at county finances. Here is What County Commissioner Xavier Suarez uncovered: At the Fire Distrct 600 are making over $118,000 (salaries a little too hefty don't you think?). And why do we need 75 Fire Chiefs, 279 Fire Captains and 425 Fire Lieutenants? Remember fancy titles bring higher pay. There is a staff of 1,200 regular workers to 800 supervisors. Maybe we have to comb through the budget.
