  3. i believe the UEZ in 2009 purchased two ambulances one for EMS and one for HAtzolah. Wow i guess this is not wonderful, keeping part of your tax money down,. I guess UEZ funds are not ok when you see the police officers walking down the street keeping you safe on clifton and on the bikes. That is UEZ funds. Moving along many of the people that congregate in from of the post office and on the corners where you and your kids walk to go shopping.
    I guess if it is not in black and white with a hat, it does not mean anything to us, one more way we are ruining our town because people can not see beyond themselves. Keep up the good work UEZ, i feel safe and respoect my town.
