Will They Get Overtime?

9/13/17 Council Meeting

PERTH AMBOY – R-359-9/17 – Authorizing 7 Police Officer Recruits to attend the basic course for Police Officers at the Cape May Police Academy in amount not to exceed $17,500.

Resident Ken Balut wanted to know, “Will these Officers get paid vacation and overtime for sleeping in Cape May? Police Officers get low pay. They should get travel time, too. It’s disgusting that secretaries are given overtime for working on campaigns and we’re not giving Officers decent pay. I also have a problem with Harbortown. Did you ever see that pool? They need to have 2 crossing guards there. When is the millionaire (developer) going to give money for these activities? We have to give permission to spend money to have Fun Day on his property.”

Earlier in the meeting, Balut had mentioned the killing of a Perth Amboy Resident by the notorious M13 Gang.

King responded, “Most of the crime committed in Perth Amboy has to do with parking issues.”
