Campbell police to get raises



Published: Wed, December 19, 2012 @ 10:40 p.m.

CAMPBELL

City police will see their first raises in eight years because city council has accepted a fact-finder’s recommendation for increases in their present three-year contract.

The contract was settled last year but was reopened only for wage talks. Arguments before a state fact-finder took place late last month.

Council unanimously passed a resolution Wednesday which OKs 2.96-percent raises for seven officers who were hired after 2005. That raise is retroactive to March 2012 and continues through 2014.

For six officers who were hired before Oct. 17, 2005, the contract calls for two lump sum payments of $1,000 in 2013. One patrol officer and one cadet whose wages are lowest will see an additional 3.96 percent raise in 2014.

How are Campbell's finances these days? Same old gloom right?

Maybe it's time for smaller towns to rethink how they deal with police staffing. It's very costly and in larger cities I've recently been looking over financials for look like over 50% of annual operating budget.

Let's give everyone a raise. Turn on the printing presses and run them until the ink runs out. But don't raise taxes one cent or expect taxpayers to chip in a nickel.

Oh wait, that would be dollar devaluation and we have about 5 cents left of a dollars original value. Hard to devalue that anymore. Hmmm what should we do?

Hey did Campbell Capers ever catch that bada$$ from Ytown with the hanging dingle berries on his mirror?

Pay raise my foot. They ought to be happy to have jobs and not be playing copper in Ytown proper.

I have a question. Isn't the city in fiscal emergency? If so, aren't those raises illegal? (actually two questions)

Last time I heard Campbell's finance were still under supervision and things weren't good.

I second the notion that such raises likely violated the supervision, but might have been approved by the folks overseeing the Campbell circus.
