Many readers will remember our opposition to Measure Q last election. One of the main reasons we couldn’t support it was our belief that little of the money collected would ever make it to Public Safety. Well our worst fears are materializing as the Council is poised to make draconian cuts to Public Safety.
Here are some citizens fighting back!
The City of Eureka is considering possible cuts to its Public Safety budget. These cuts would eliminate 14 positions from Eureka’s Police Department and a closure of Fire Station 4 at Myrtle and West. These are the same cuts that we were all promised would be avoided by passing Measure Q!
A meeting will be held to discuss the proposed budget cuts. This will be your opportunity to voice your opinion.
When: Wednesday June 3rd at 4pm
Where: Council Chamber at 531 K Street
If you are unable to attend the meeting you are encouraged to write or call your local Council Members.
