Mary Lou Allen: Reader agrees with consolidation idea
In reference to John Kinkaid’s letter to the editor dated Feb. 20, I would also like to thank Craig City Councilman Chris Nichols for trying to save the taxpayers money. If $750,000 could be saved per year by combining the Craig Police Department and Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, why would the City Council put a five-year moratorium on that in a spur-of-the-moment vote? In my mind that equals $3,750,000 of our money, the taxpayers.
The County Commissioners, City Council, Sheriff’s Office and Police Department need to work together to make this happen now, not wait five years!
