  1. Are you kidding me ??? For a town of 8600 people !!! This is absolutely absurd !!! Plus there is half a million in overtime !!! How corrupt are these people ??? Half the town is on the darn payroll…this is an absolute disgrace (has no one a conscious) this is a perfect example of a city being mismanaged for years and these people being allowed to get away with it…so much waste … FOR A TOWN OF 8600 PEOPLE – this doesn’t even show the BLOATED school system… this is an example of what’s wrong with our greedy and corrupt government and society…it’s not what is best…it’s what can we get out of this and what can we get away with…and it’s allowed to continue…

  2. according to FBI statistics last provided in 2016 the median officers per 10K people is 16.1
    the total police personnel is 20.2
    Brigantine has 34 full time plus 7 part time plus 2 admins for a total of 43 people / personnel to support a population of 8,650 people
    these numbers for Brigantine are more than double the national averages
    how can anyone justify these extremes – which add to our extremely high tax rates
    the same can be said for our school system which is totally failing – there grade averages are all below state averages – just AVERAGES – except in 2 categories. the school system is EXTREMELY BLOATED WITH VERY POOR RESULTS – there must be change. the old ways have totally failed us.

  3. According to the NFPA – National Fire Protection Association – the US average for firefighters per 100,000 people is 167 total personnel. We are 8.6 percent of 100,000 population therefore we should – by the national average standard – have a total of 14 people. How can it possibly be justified having 35 full time people ??? Things must change – our tax dollars are being managed so poorly. An absolute disgrace.
