fritzdawy - No, many of us see it. We also see that the highest paid cops are not willing to live within the community that is bankrolling them. We need to push for residency laws. Everyone concerned, needs to contact the Mayor and City Council to create and/or enforce residency of all police and all City workers so the people collecting paychecks courtesy of the residents also have to pay those taxes and live with the quality of life around here. Then and only then, will you see the City turn around.

I just heard that the next police chief will avoid the residency requirements by agreeing to stay at his Mother's house on the days when he's scheduled to work. Thus avoiding paying taxes to the city and being a full part of the community he serves. It's bad enough that the overtime is killing the taxpayers of Schenectady. The Mayor needs to step up and demand that all cops adhere to the residency laws.
