Promotion to police sergeant for Preston


Mon, Sep 27th, 2010
Posted in Government

Police Chief Matt Schultz recommended the city council create a police sergeant position at their September 17 meeting. He explained it would be valuable to have someone with the authority to act in a supervisory role when he is not available or on vacation. Councilman Robert Sauer was absent.

The department has three full-time and eleven part-time employees. Schultz suggested Blaise Sass for the new position because of his longevity with the department. Sass has been with the department for eight years. He said the promotion of Sass would have a minimal immediate impact on the budget. Without the new position the department, because of its size, doesn't allow for advancement. Schultz suggested creating the position will help retain good people.

Sass would potentially jump a pay grade but be backed up on steps, so he would be getting only about fifteen cents more per hour than he currently receives.

By consensus the council agreed to have City Administrator Joe Hoffman develop a formal job description for the next meeting. The council voted to make Sass Acting Chief for Schultz in his absence in the interim as Sass has acted in that capacity in the past.

Siren Controller

Public Works Director Bill Cox told the council that the civil defense system was recently checked and the controller by the county highway shed failed the test and could fail in an emergency in the near future. Cox said the siren is fine, but the controller, which is a radio receiver, is the problem.

The city has four sirens of which two have controllers that were replaced in the last year or so. Those two controllers are compatible with the mandated narrow banding required by 2013. The one that failed the test and the one at city hall are not compatible with narrow banding.

The city staff recommended replacement of the controller by the county highway shed at an installed cost of $2,490.19. This was not budgeted for 2010 so the money would come out of the city's reserves. The city has budgeted $2,500 in the 2011 budget to replace the second controller which is not compatible with narrow banding.

The testing of the controllers and the accepted quote both are from Whitewater Wireless, Inc. Council members asked Cox to see if the city could get a reduced price for both controllers, which will have to be replaced to be narrow band compatible, if they replace both at the same time.
