Civil Service Commission to talk about police budget
October 10, 2012 · 8:46 AM
The Bainbridge Island Civil Service Commission will meet this week to talk about the proposed budget for the police department.
City staff presented the proposed 2012-2013 budget to the city council on Sept. 26. The two-year spending plan includes the elimination of one of two positions for a parking enforcement officer, and the reduction of a full-time position for an evidence technician in the police department to half-time. The cuts are expected to save nearly $100,000.
Also on the agenda, commissioners are expected to review a draft police officer job description, talk about the commission’s budgetary role, and review proposed rule amendments.
An executive session to evaluate qualifications of an applicant for employment is also planned.
The meeting is 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11 in the council conference room at city hall.
