    Default Today's Daily News - 20 companies proposed to be closed

    Mayor Bloomberg unveils $68.8 billion city budget; fire dept., senior centers, teachers face cuts
    BY ADAM LISBERG
    DAILY NEWS CITY HALL BUREAU CHIEF
    Thursday, February 17th 2011, 1:46 PM



    Egan-Chin/News
    Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a new city budget Thursday that is counting on Albany to restore $400 million cut by Gov. Cuomo.
    Mayor Bloomberg unveiled a new $68.8 billion city budget Thursday that relies on one big savior - and a few big 'ifs.'
    The budget for the year starting July 1 will be balanced in large part by $2.1 billion in new tax revenue from a recovering economy, as well as savings in health costs and interest payments.
    However, it also counts on Albany restoring a $400 million cut by Gov. Cuomo and reaching an unspecified limit on the $12,000 annual payments that have been promised to cops and firefighters.
    "If the state does not come through, then we're just going to have to share the pain across all agencies," Bloomberg said. "The cuts to services will be more painful than ever."
    The new budget would spend $49.9 billion in city money, up from $44.8 billion in the year that ends June 30. The remainder comes from Albany and Washington.
    Bloomberg blamed the increase largely on education spending, with the city using its own extra dollars to make up for $2.3 billion in state and federal cutbacks.
    Bloomberg's budget already includes some cuts that will surely make New Yorkers squeal: Permanently closing 20 fire companies, slashing $27 million from senior centers and eliminating care for 16,624 children through the Administration for Children's Services.
    "If somebody has a better way, I'd be happy to sit down and listen to them," the mayor said. "I'm determined to hand the city over to my successor on sound fiscal footing."
    Even with the new revenue, Bloomberg is sticking to his plan to lay off 4,666 teachers.
    He has threatened thousands of teacher layoffs in past years as well, and as recently as last month said 21,000 teachers could be cut to balance the budget.
    Critics say the plan is designed to send a message as much as to save money.
    "The mayor's insistence on teacher layoffs becomes more and more bizarre," said teachers union president Michael Mulgrew. "We've already lost nearly 5,000 teachers to attrition in the last two years, and class sizes are skyrocketing across the city."
    The City Council is likely to fight many of Bloomberg's proposed cuts over the next several months. Both sides typically negotiate a final spending plan in early June.
    Councilman Domenic Recchia (D-Brooklyn), chairman of the Finance Committee, said he disagreed with some of Bloomberg's priorities but agreed it was difficult for the mayor to overcome Albany's cuts.
    "ACS is taking a devastating cut," Recchia said. "We want to try to save as many social services as possible."

    that *** Bloomberg must have "close firehouses" on his clipboard he uses it so frequently. I think that's the first thing he writes down when drawing up his proposed budget.

    Maybe all his assistants can take a paycut? I mean no need to make that much just to follow him around..just saying. Oh, and since he plans to cut the number of teachers, which will raise the number of students, which in turn will lower the quality of education recieved;I guess that means that those vulcans do have a case now lol

    Here's the interview I did with NY1. Hopefully some good comes out of it or at least put pressure on the judge to make a decision.

    I just wanna make note for some reason the reporter said i was "hit" by grenade fire, she misheard what i said so dont think i got hit with a grenade or something i dont have a purple heart. shes probably referring to when i told her i was in general shot at and blown up (everyone whose infantry eventually does lol). i figure id tell you guys that so you dont think i'm a wounded warrior because theres plenty of them out there especially a few close friends of mine. carry on gents it aint over yet...

    do any of you guys have problems working out in the AM? I work out in the PM 90% of the time so when I do have an AM work out I get light headed and sometimes feel a lot weaker than I should. I'm guessing the easy answer is to have more AM workouts but I'm wondering if this is anything any of you guys experienced?

    Its because you have no food in your system so your gonna feel like that. It's not gonna kill you to workout in the morning on an empty stomach, unless your very dehydrated, then your gonna be hurting. If you get in a rhythm with morning workouts you'll get used to it

    Thanks for your service in the armed forces, bro. Hopefully this clown makes his final ruling soon...


    On a different note, I have a question to those who are already on the job or are knowledgeable about the pension system. The cops are already on Tier 3, which I hear is a disgraceful pension plan; there seems to be a lot of screwing of the new guys on this tier.

    As you all know, my 1 and only goal is to become a part of the FDNY. Let's say I join the PD under Tier 3. If I get another shot at the test and eventually join you guys at the Rock (it's always in my prayers), will I have the option to switch Tiers (assuming the FDNY has a better Tier in place by then)? Or will I be stuck in Tier 3 for the rest of my career?

    If they do create a new Tier that's better than Tier 3 by the time the next FDNY class goes in, I don't want to be SOL by joining the PD right now and being stuck under Tier 3. If I do have an option to transfer over to the new Tier, this wouldn't be much an issue.

    My test with the PD is expiring this year, so I'm very torn. Should I just join the PD and get my pension started even if it is under this castrated pension Tier, or should I just take the risk and wait for the age extension (gotta hope it goes through) and the new FD exam? I need some brotherly advice, guys. Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Damn, I'm sure like most of you, I definitely didn't think I'd be going through this right now 5 years ago...

    They mention this briefly on the bill mahr show last night. They were talking about the budget and wallstreet stealing money with out punishment and mentioned how silly it is that firefighters and teachers get blamed as the expensive costs.

    I am am a cop under tier3..the way I understand it is that if you switch you cant get a worse tier and as of now I think the chances of them creating a better tier is minimal I would get tier 3 because that may not even be around by the time the next FD class comes.
    Specifics about Tier 3 so far from the PBA (alot is unknown because it wasnt used in some time)
    22.5 years is half pay just like now
    25 years is half pay with a COLA that adds 1%-3% to your pension at the rate of inflation from the year your retire
    Variable Supplement is the same
    NO ITHP or 50% indicator although there is a lawsuit ongoing claiming tier3 should get it
    Disability pension is not 3/4 but 50% tax free
    It sucks not having ITHP and 50% but you can make some of it up by putting more into Deffered Comp and if your willing to do the extra 2.5 years the COLA over the long run adds up quickly
    IMO take the cop job try not to get sued and start your city time

    I think you need to have the met schooling on hiring.... You don't need it to sit down to tale the test... Although it is better if u have it now instead of needing to get it.... How many
    People do u think are taking this test??? Do you really thi k there is only 3 spots up for grabs????? That is very sad odds.

    3 or 4 guys may get hired off the LB test. They require EMT card because that is 90% of what they do. Once hired you work tours on the engine and tours on the ambulance. The city only has one group of paid guys that includes the engine and the bus. The rest of the dept. is vollies including the chief. They also give preference to residents. You also MUST become a CC within 3 YEARS of getting hired with LBFD. There is going to be a lot of guys taking the test so the odds are pretty slim if you don't have EMT experience, are a LB resident and "know" the right people. They take all into account. Anyone remember how many guys went and took Garden City?? They hired one guy. Can't hurt to take the test gentlemen. I just need to get off EMS can't take it much longer.

    BUt this is the 6019 thread...back to matter at hand.

    Question Sal Who

    Has anyone seen or heard from SC? With all the Multiples, deaths, and

    injuries to FF, don't you think it would be a good idea for him to show his face

    without Bloomy standing if front of or beside him. After all I believe he is

    still the FC. Be smart out there and stay safe.

    It was a happy day for 34 members of the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) as they received promotions during a ceremony at the Fire Academy on Feb. 17.

    "You're going to make us stronger than ever in the field," said Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano. "You're going to make this job even better than it already is."

    Chief of Department Edward Kilduff added: "Promotions are a milestone - they mean the Department is moving forward. The Department is getting stronger, better today."

    Among those promoted was Abdo Nahmod, who was sworn in as Chief of the EMS Command.

    Chief Nahmod, appointed Chief of EMS on Jan. 5, has 25 years of service with the FDNY's Emergency Medical Service. He started his career as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) in 1986 and working his way up through the ranks to become Chief of Emergency Medical Dispatch in 2008.

    He earned a Master's degree in Homeland Security Studies from the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security in Monterey, Calif., in March 2010.

    He was recognized five times during his career for meritorious service.

    Commissioner Cassano also announced that he is upgrading the role of Chief of EMS from a three to a four-star position, in recognition of the growing stature and importance of EMS, which responded to a record 1.26 million calls in 2010.



    Division Chief Rosario Terranova and Deputy Chief Nancy Gilligan shook hands after the promotions ceremony.


    Other promotions included: Jerry Gombo to Assistant Chief of Operations; Michael Fitton to Deputy Assistant Chief; Rosario Terranova and Janice Olszewski to division chief; and Captains John Sullivan, Phillip Chindelas and Nancy Gilligan to deputy chief.

    In addition, 21 paramedics were promoted to lieutenant and five EMTs were promoted to paramedic.

    "You are truly the future of this agency," said Chief Nahmod, moments after he was promoted. "I look forward to working with all of you."

    All of the promoted members will be assigned to units throughout the five boroughs.
