  • 18% raise for Mayor's staff and Straub is still here?

    Remember this when they want to reopen our contract and take back our 3% raise while simultaneously cutting our pay with a take home car fuel surcharge.

    You know what else sucks? I heard a few of the staff got up to 30% to "keep the position competitive"...

    Come on. And all I've heard from numerous MCSD deputies is how they've all been told that Ballard is going to cut IMPD guys, etc. That would be great... Give your people a raise but cut IMPD officers when we don't have enough to cover the street as it is.

      Ballard is an idiot.

        "Do as I say, not as I do" and all that. Wonder what will happen to proactive crime suppression if the city doesn't honor the contract?

          If you didn't go to the FOP meeting last night, you should have. I hate being psychic.

          While the city hasn't officially reopened our contract yet, they are making preliminary talk about doing so, along with the fuel surcharge and, of course, no new hires.

          Oh, and the city did let the number of officers fall below the federal minimum for the COPS grant, so they get to pay back $3.8 million. I wonder if Straub will put that on his resume...

                Couldn't leave district last night to attend as we were running right at "mandatory staffing limits"...
                Anyone care to recap what was said?

                    Basically that the city has an $11 million dollar shortage in the public safety budget (not just IMPD, all of public safety). They were trying to close that gap without reopening the contract, but after several meetings the city said that opening the contract was still on the table. IFD will be shuttering some fire stations, no word on the sheriff's dept, fuel surcharge at $52/month is still on the table.

                    $3.8 million of that shortfall is repaying the federal COPS grant because we are under the staffing levels needed to keep it.

                      As long as I've got a job I don't care.

                        The mayor needs to be punished for this, not us.

                          How much of that money was taken from public safety so they can bid on another Super Bowl? This city has its priorities way out of whack. I'd much rather ensure public safety is properly funded than host another Super Bowl.

                            I don't think it will go that far, but its a start.

                              Was there any mention of going to 10 hour shifts?
