Council Begins Review of Mayor's Proposed Budget

Live Post

Police Chief Rick Gregory provides an overview of the Police Department's proposed budget.


Police Budget
Council Members began their review of Mayor Curtis' proposed budget by hearing from Police Chief Rick Gregory on police funding needs. The proposal adds six new officers to the force, a step toward implementing recommendations by the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).


Preventive Maintenance Road Funding
Council Members established preventive maintenance road funding as a priority for Council study earlier in the year. They are examining various funding options and trying to determine the most equitable and fair approach to a difficult shortfall. Council staff has prepared a budget analysis on road funding issues. 


Future Meetings
The Council is planning additional budget meetings for the last week of May to discuss the budget with other City directors. The first public hearing on the tentative budget will be held in the City Council Chambers on June 5, 7:00 pm.
