was paying for 13 WPD officer positions. That grant is expiring. We need to keep the 13 officers, but this goes to show what happens when you pay for full-time employees with "part-time" money. Just as our illustrious Governator, Bev Perdue did with "stimulus" funds...paid ongoing bills with one-time money.
I urge the City to cut out the amount budgeted for "studies"...and keep the police officers.
