|2nd PUBLIC MEETING:|
Consolidate Police Services.
Sept.8 @7:00PM | Senior Citizen's Center
This is the second of two (2) meetings that the Village of Saugerties Board of Trustees will hold to discuss the results of a two (2) year study to combine the police departments of both the Village and Town of Saugerties.
This meeting is an opportunity for the public to voice their opinions, ask questions and express their support for a referendum (possibly in October) which will allow Village voters to vote on the merger of the two police departments.
The Village is currently $7,000,000.00 in debt and tax revenues have falled far short of Village projections. The Study (which is available online HERE). It clarifies the savings and benefits of combining police departments.
