smitty,Just like the little boy who cried wolf, I really doubt Chief Olin spends any time worrying about you. All speculation, no proof. Yeah, I've read what Mayor Amyx told you, Bupkiss!

Grab you ***'s the taxpayer is going to get to pay for the federal mediator AND the outcome... jez... if this was your pocketbook... couldn't you come up with a better solution?Lets try this one... lets get some production out of our city employees, not just hire them to hone their e-mail skills.

HA! I just won a $50 bet that 'smitty' would have some comment already. Of course, the bet was with myself so I probably won't pay up.

What with all the illegal activities in the LPD, this is the ideal time to add the BADBOY clause to the contract. This clause will not allow retirement benefits or pay to be negotiated for those that are attempting to retire prior to the filing of charges for illegal activity. Something that the LPD is involved with at this time. This clause, if in place now, would save the city multiple thousands of dollars annually.Lawhorn, ask and report on this clause or absence in the contract. Also print the facts on all the extra benefits that are allowed the police. We get information only on pay scale but not the benefits and extras. Facts about the real price we pay for our law enforcement would put McAtee's 24/7 sympathy plea in perspective so we can decide for ourselves.It wouldn't hurt for that bad boy clause to be all the city contracts if any employee is found to be breaking the law while under city employment, city managers & commissioners included(ethics please).Unfortunately our society is not motivated until it openly and blatantly effects their pocket books. Check out my allegations and act accordingly.

2.5%-3.00% wage increase would be adequate; especially during this tight economy. Since a mediator is involved, the police officers are probably wanting more. Just like the teachers wanting a 7% pay increase.
