Mayor McCormack reviewed the Town's interest <br /> and questions concerning law enforcement since incorporation and annual budget <br /> adoptions. Few to no complaints have been made to the Town concerning the <br /> current level of service provided by the Nevada County Sheriff's Department. The <br /> Town's interest lies in management and cost efficiency, and whether the County's <br /> overhead is affecting law enforcement costs for Town police services. <br /> <br />Town Manager Wright concurred with Mayor McCormack, and also stated that the <br />long term goal of the Council is to provide the most cost efficient provision of <br />service to the residents, salaries, benefits, and overall costs. Also included in <br />discussions with Nevada County would be start-up costs of a Town Police <br />Department, the law enforcement budget, cost issues, and specifics for a multi-year <br />County contract. <br /> <br />Town consultant Clay Brown reviewed the contents of his Final Report <br />Alternatives Analysis with the Council, with the bottom line being that for the <br />Town to have its own Police Department, the costs would be very close to what <br />the County contract is costing. <br /> <br />Main discussion items throughout the workshop included: <br />Call for service statistics (resort community versus larger city). <br />· Costs (start-up & operational) of jail facility and possibility of area-wide <br /> sharing of costs and usage. <br />· Review of crime statistics and number of reports over last two years. <br />· Accurate recording of time for all activities. <br />· Allocation of hours between County service and Town service. <br />· Salary and benefit projections. <br /> <br /> <br />
