Far as I'm concerned, anything goes except burning soiled diapers.  I draw the line there.

Maybe he's just biding his time and getting township seniority for when they create their own police force like Dundee did...

Yeah there has been a small group of people wanting Bedford to establish their own police dept.  The current situation seems to be working pretty well. Bedford directly supports some number of Monroe County deputies and the overall dept provides support. 
Just would mean more taxes for probably nothing better than what we have now.

Nice setup they have in Dumbdee.  The cops are all meter maids on 23 with their speed trap everyday....and an office in Cabelas for what, I have no idea.  Dumbdee needs a police department like they need Ted Norris.  Glad I don't live there.

Wouldn't Cabelas be paying for the officer,,
Doesn't seem like Dundee citizens should pay for that

Blue2 - don't you think Cabelas IS paying for the officer - and more?

How much do you think they pay to Dundee a year in taxes?

Shouldn't they get some "services" from their Governmental unit?

Well, for sure Dundee can thank Cabelas for all the growth on that side of 23.  Otherwise it would still be a corn field.

MEN has article today that the states catastrophic fund is running low and is short almost $2 billion to pay claims.  The per vehicle fee is going up another $10 in July to $170..  Maybe this is the same increase we discussed a few months ago or could it be another.
Not long ago it was reported there was a $10 Billion surplus.  Now they say there is a shortage.
Again, Mich being the only state that has this scam one should ask what do the other 49 know that we don't

You'll never know - they are protected from FOI... 

They have the classic "actuarial" mentality - probably have billions in the bank but because of Obamacare an other raises - (remember they pay the full amount billed) - it will allow them to "claim" they need more $$  because everyone needs their services for life and will live forever...

And all the self interested parties seem to have bought off our legislature - so good luck ever joining the other 49 states.

Nope - if we were like the other 49 States it would be a humanitarian disaster of epic proportions.

So - some treat that car accident as winning the lottery, and we keep paying for their payout.
