INDEPENDENCE — The Town of Independence Police Department wants more officers, but it appears the only way to fund them is through a tax increase — something town council does not want to do.
During a budget workshop session April 22, Police Chief James Wagoner pleaded his case requesting an additional $63,932 in his department's 2009-10 budget.
“I put in money for another officer,” Wagoner told council. “I would like to be ready for the opening of the new prison and be proactive, instead of reactive.”
