City Council Aims more Money to RPS Budget
The City Council seems to be attempting to add money to the RPS budget where Mayor Jones falls short. Different proposed amendments range from $4,000,000 to $24,000,000 dollar increase. This is an attempt by the councilmen and women to make-up for the nearly $23 million dollar difference between what the superintendant asked for and the mayor proposed. The Council also proposed an increase to firemen and police who have worked over a decade isntead of pay raises for new recruits.
