Should City Employees Be Mandated To Live In The City?
There’s an article in the Buffalo News this morning that talks about Buffalo’s Top Income Earners being paid by the City Of Buffalo as City Employees while living in the Suburbs. Many feel it’s unfair that Buffalo taxpayers help pay Police, Firefighter / City employee salaries, but many of the employees spend their money outside of the city. Others also feel the issue goes beyond dollars and cents…saying it’s more secure living in places like Amherst because many of the Police Officers live in that area.
Speaking of Amherst, and according to the Buffalo News report; the town of Amherst has a Residency Law stating that “All Town Employees, including Police, Must Live In Amherst”!
Do you think Buffalo should adopt a similar LAW making in mandatory that any Buffalo City Employee MUST Live In Buffalo?
