2/16/12 – Horicon and the police union have reached a tentative contract agreement. That’s according to Mayor Jim Grigg, who says during a bargaining session last night the two sides were able to strike a three-year deal that will be put in front of the council for approval next week. The deal comes after the city flirted with shutting down the department and contracting out coverage to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department. Horicon hasn’t had a police contract since their last deal expired after 2010. The tentative contract would cover 2011, 2012 and 2013.
