Well, it looks like Council is seriously considering a Public Safety Levy in 2021. How do I know this? Tonight in a Study Session the Finance Director recommended funding a Public Safety Levy Consultant, $150,000 one-time. The levy will pay for existing costs, not hiring additional officers and equipment. Overtime expenses must be significant.
I find it very hard to believe the City needs a highly paid consultant to assemble a levy.
