Mayor Calls Sick Leave At KV Fire "Out Of Hand"

The mayor of Rothesay says there's a big problem at the KV Fire Department, which is currently operating with a deficit and has approached the town asking for a change in the way funds are allocated.

Bill Bishop tells CHSJ News council needs to take a look at how money is being spent when it comes to sick leave, disability and overtime. Bishop says the current usage of sick time leave is out of hand and needs to be explained.

The councils of Rothesay and Quispamsis will be scheduling a meeting to discuss what should be done about the issue. Bishop says they did the same thing last year and after some debate, they two towns took a similar stance and agreed upon certain terms for the way funds are allocated to the fire department.
