Mayor Argues City Police Deserve Federal Compensation

Why should City Police do federal work and not get paid for it? 

That question being raised by Mayor Ivan Court with the city facing a dire budget crunch next year.

He estimates 20 per cent of the work done by City Police is for the feds at a cost, Court tells CHSJ News, of something like 5 million dollars a year. 

He calls it yet another example of downloading onto the shoulders of financially strapped municipalities.
