Not surprising that the spokesperson for the Oro Valley Police Union has joined in with Councilman Al Kunisch in questioning why their budget---that is almost 50% of the whole town's budget should be looked into.
Kunisch says; "What's broken, why do we have to do this?"
We say, "Let's see if the police budget is "broken," or at the very least, overstaffed." Doesn't a $12.3 million budget deserve just a little scrutiny?
As Councilman Bill Garner said; "We're not going to know where we're at until we do some focused study."
I addressed the council on this issue and noted "ROI"---Return on Investment. If we can do a study that will potentially save us hundreds of thousands of dollars, then I ask: Why not?"
Obviously Councilman KC Carter thought otherwise, as he cast the only "no" vote.
