The City of Toledo has received a $1,578,723 workers' compensation
rebate from the State of Ohio, and on Friday the Bell Administration submitted
to council a detailed plan to spend that windfall.
Besides earmarking half of that money to cover police and
fire overtime for this year, the plan calls for increasing the upcoming police
class from 50 to 65, and the upcoming fire class from 30 to 50.
Deputy Mayor Shirley Green says boosting public safety
personnel levels is a high priority, as many police officers and firefighters
are preparing for retirement.
"We started in a hole in terms of staffing for the safety
forces, and we've hired classes for the fire and police departments in all of
the last 3 years and we want to continue to do so," she said. "The opportunity
to increase both those class sizes is great."
The proposed spending breakdown is as follows: Increase
police class size - $278,823, police overtime - $200,000, increase fire class -
$132,310, fire overtime - $600,000, senior program supplies/services - $1,700,
athletic programs supplies/services - $3,000, ice rink supplies/services -
$14,000, pools supplies/services - $70,290, park maintenance supplies/services -
$88,400, cemeteries supplies/services - $112,000, downtown landscaping
supplies/services - $78,200.
Council will consider the request as early as Tuesday.
