Mayor Swearengin Announces Community Forum for Input on Independent Police Auditor Issue
02/18/2009

Mayor Ashley Swearengin today announced that a forum to allow community members to provide input on developing an independent police auditor proposal will be held at Sunnyside High School, 1019 S. Peach Ave., on Wednesday, Feb. 25, from 6 to 8 p.m.

“This is about good policy -- an independent police auditor is the right thing to do, but it’s important that we have comprehensive input from the community as we put together our final proposal,” Mayor Swearengin said. “This forum will be an important opportunity for people to weigh in on the issues.”

Mayor Swearengin also will meet with City Council members and other groups interested in the independent police auditor next week. She plans to present a proposal to City Council in early March.
