APPROVAL OF MINUTES:

COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE MAYOR:

Mayor Stimpson pronounced by reducing the police jurisdiction the City could realize a minimum of $1.5 million in savings that will in turn improve services for our citizens and the City will respond to approximately 30 percent fewer calls in the police jurisdiction.

Mayor Stimpson spoke on highlights of the administration’s proposed fiscal year 2017 budget.

Mayor Stimpson announced a partnership with Lowe’s and Keep Mobile Beautiful to clean up litter, paint and repair the basketball court at Figures Park.

Councilmember Gregory requested the Mayor to have Executive Director of Finance Paul Wesch to explain how the disruption of police service would be handled if Ordinance 01-036 is approved.

Mr. Wesch responded:

“Good morning. The concept we talked about this morning was how to handle the disruption that inevitably occurs when a police jurisdiction is rolled back, even with the additional time we would have before January 1, 2017. The answer is this is not ground that has gone untrodden before. We do have a mechanism to be able to work with the County and unincorporated areas that would be outside our police jurisdiction during the adjustment period, after the ordinance is adopted reducing the police jurisdiction takes effect.”

“This is an example of a Mutual Aid Agreement that Mobile has right now with the State. Mobile has these types of agreements with the County and other jurisdictions, they are fairly common. When Huntsville eliminated its police jurisdiction a number of years ago they entered into Cross Jurisdictional Mutual Aid Agreements throughout the county to get past the temporary periods of adjustment. Some of those are actually permanent and ongoing. There will be areas within the county with more stress than others both in police and fire protection coverage. This is what we would have an interest in pursuing with those areas from January 1, 2017 until they have settled into their new roles.”
