City Rejects Officers' Plan to Give Back Money

The Grass Valley Police Officers are scratching their heads over a offer to open their current contract early to save the city money. In a press release issued by the police officer association and the management association, the rank and file are trying to understand why a offer to give back money has been rejected. The Officers had offered to give back three percent in pay and double the amount they pay for medical insurance. The association says it would save the city almost four hundred thousand dollars over three year. The proposal was also to begin nine months before the current contract expires. The Police Officers will still try to open negotiation with the city. The Police Department has lost one third of its staff due to budget cuts; and will likely lose more staffing. Grass Valley mayor Jan Arbuckle refused to comment on the matter as the city is still in open negotiations with the association.
