Probing Liberty police protection costs
Killian said the meeting should include the full boards of both municipalities, as well as representatives from the sheriff’s department, state police and village police to look at all the potential options. If, for instance, the village police were dissolved, police coverage could be picked up by the sheriff’s office using a police district to pay for the additional officers. Killian also said and the meeting should be open to the public; councilmember Maurice Gerry agreed.
The public may not be invited to speak at the meeting, but if the process moves forward there will be public hearings and a public vote. A meeting was set for May 12, with the location to be determined at a later date.
