Question 13 For The Candidates Re Police Contract

The following question has been submitted via the feedback form on the Questions page and has been sent to those candidates with email; their answers, if/when they answer, will be posted on the answers page and the document with all answers will be updated.

The Town now is in the process of negotiating a new contract with our local police force. Within this contract (expires Dec 2014) is a clause which if activated could cost our town dearly! What is your knowledge of this buyout clause? what is your understanding of the rational behind the inclusion of it in our contract? What and how many officers would be involved? What would be the cost to our town if enforced one day? From my understanding, we are talking anywhere from 8-10 million dollars would be paid out to officers changing uniforms, not losing jobs? Your thoughts please!
