City council tables vote on police salaries

Members of the Bloomington City Council talk with their attorney before deciding to table a vote on an ordinance that includes salaries for police officers before the police meet with the city’s legal team again October 24 to discuss a new contract, Thursday, Oct., 10, 2019 in Bloomington, Ind. Passing the ordinance before the late October meeting would potentially leave wages at the 2018 level, and possibly assure a second year of zero raises for police officers. The contract being negotiated by the Fraternal Order of Police, and the City of Bloomington’s legal team, ran through the end of 2018. Officers have been working toward a new contract in 2019, but are still under the terms of the old contract. The city council must vote by the end of the year to authorize paying police and firefighters. (Photo by Jeremy Hogan/The Bloomingtonian)
