Re: what is behind the mayor wanting to give the chief of police a 9000.00 raise?
Why in the world would you give a 9 month employee a 9,000 dollar salary increase? Even if it is to bring the pay to the level of comparable sized towns. This makes absolutely no sense at all. If your city positions are underpaid and you look to bring them inline with other cities you do not do it all in one instant. Increase the pay over a few years. He may be a wonder person and a great police officer but an increase like this is just irresponsible governing.
