And the educational value of this is what? And the results of the impact study, as agreed to by the BOE is what?

Why do you wring your hands in frustration when 10-15% of the voters "bother" to vote when our input means NOTHING?

Looks like Boily is back in charge of the board.
Looks like we are back to doing business as usual, no facts, just emotion.
No broadcast on the radio but lots of tv people.
Looks like Roger is back in charge.

Well at least we just got our tax bills and they can't ask for more before next September. Or can they???

How will the officers spend their time in the buildings?

What resources are the officers going to provide the students?

So how much per hour is the charge?

Was any other police force offered a bid?

Who monitors this activity?

To 2:22PM & 9:15PM ~~ Because the BOE decided to not broadcast the meeting, only they know the answers to your questions. However, I seriously doubt that any bids were ever taken.

"doubt that any bids were ever taken". Interesting point Scats. It appears that the Town of Greece is contracting out their police services to a consumer, namely the school district. ( Can the rest of us buy some officers too?)The school budget is paying them for police services at the rate they charge which just happens to be time and a half for the individual officer. Are government agencies permitted to sell their services and charge for them? I know if you don't keep up your property and they have to mow or clean up they charge on the tax bill. That was in the paper about a month ago. But the property owners are basically being fined, they did not contract that service. So the question remains , can the town of greece pimp out their cops? Maybe the reason they do not sell the services to hilton or Spencerport is that it is illegal. To carry the debate to the extreme can they contract out other workers of the town like plowing and tree removal and paving and snow plowing and building inspection? Hey they need the overtime money too. I think this should be sent to the attorney general. Who is the boss of these officers while they are at the schools. It would seem to be the town. What about workmen's comp if they are injured? Are they on the town or school district? Too bad the meeting was not recorded or broadcast. Maybe a board member asked these questions. ROTFLMAO

Here is some math if the secret data is correct. We will have to rely on computations based on suppositions since the meeting was not broadcast.
The police are in each of the 4 schools 2 days per week for 2 hours each of those days. So 2 times 2 is 4 hours per high school times 4 high schools would give us 16 hours per week. Multiply that by 36 weeks and you get the total number of police hours for the year at 576.
So let us take the total of $125,000 for the program of reimbursement to the town for the services and divide that by the number of the year's hours 576 to see what we are paying per hour. That strangely and unbelievably comes to $217 per hour. So are they there more hours than we know or are we being gouged by the town to pay for the new recruits they are training for the police? Also what is the base rate of a Greece police officer such that his overtime rate would be $217 per hour. Assuming overtime is time and a half that would be base of $144 per hour. Or are we also paying for the benefits of those officers?

3;48 your not being very understanding.

The cost does not matter as long as it feels good.
Why would you not ask a board member. They have all the answers to the questions you ask. JOKE
