Sweets, the raise for the MPO's will still stay in the budget. MPO's are getting a 4% REGARDLESS of if Johnson's or Ellis plan or if both were vetoed. That's a fact.

The difference then becomes: do ALL sworn officers get a MERIT raise, and no tax increase cost 425K (Ellis' plan)

DKPD & DKFD get 4% Cost of Living and 4% Merit with a millage rate increase additionally funding the rape crisis, sidewalk, senior and other cuts made when the budget (including the MPO raise) was voted positively.(Johnson's Plan)

And yes, folks you should call your commissioners. But you should call the commissioners who are trying keep the department down...Boyer, Rader, Gannon and Ellis. 3 of the 4 of them are in an election year. You should really check into how they have voted in the past.

DKPD-I'd be happy to take this to another forum if you're interested in finding out more about the differences. I've taken too much space here.

I would seriously consider giving up the rank of Sgt. in this department if the powers to be once again give a raise only to the MPO's. I have already been @#$%ed over once with the last raise they issued after the Price Waterhouse study. What is the purpose of taking on more responsibility for less pay?
