Police and administration cuts
Original post made by Common sense, Atherton: West Atherton, on May 3, 2009
For some reason, that article was deleted by Almanac staff. Perhaps it's because some posts crept it that were critical of the Atherton PD.
Now there is another thread on the Town Square forum that indicates in neighboring Menlo Park, CUTS are being requested in police salaries (I just advised no increases).
Let's discuss the impact this should have on Atherton. Again, it would be fiscally irresponsible for the town manager to get a raise in this environment, and also for police to get a raise. Otherwise the number of officers continues to get cut, while the ones remaining make more and more, and public safety suffers.
