Stimulus Funds Prompt City to Rehire 18 Officers

Mayor Kathy Taylor receives notice of approval from the Department of Justice for a grant that allowing the rehiring of 18 of 21 police officers who were laid off Oct. 27 in response to the economic slowdown.
Those layoffs were to become effective Wednesday, but the city will rehire 18 officers instead. None of the 18 officers will miss a day of pay or benefits.
“This is obviously the outcome we had hoped for,” Taylor said. “I have received numerous calls to the Mayor’s Action Center in the last week regarding the layoffs, and many of them have asked me to find a way to avoid laying off our police officers.”
