Horicon PD Contract Progress

2/11/12 – The dissolving of the Horicon Police Department has been put on hold for now. Mayor Jim Grigg says a casual meeting Thursday that included city leaders, Chief Joe Adamson, a couple of police officers and a union official was the most productive gathering they’ve had since negotiations for the 2011-2012 police contract began. While it wasn’t an official bargaining session, Grigg says he believes they’ve made progress towards coming to an agreement. A bargaining session is set for February 15th and Grigg says until that meeting takes place they won’t take any more steps toward shutting down the department. The city had a meeting earlier this week in which it was given a basic overview of the costs of contracting with the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department for coverage. Grigg says any further talks with the county will come after the bargaining session.
