The Kenton City Council continued negotiations with the Police Departments Union during closed session at last night’s meeting. After returning from closed session, the Council brought forth the fact-finder’s report which recommended a six bullet point economic terms of agreement. Some of the bullet points included, double time pay for work on non-scheduled holiday, wage increases and, the inclusion of a Police Service Allowance. However, the Council voted to reject the fact-finders report with a vote of 5-2. Antwilla Davis, 3rd Ward and Tim Leffler, 4th Ward both voted no on the rejection of the report. The negotiations will now proceed back to the parties and if no agreement is met, the negotiations will move to conciliation’s.
The Council also has guests for the evening. Boys Scouts Pack #121, of Kenton, lead the Council in the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the meeting. The Council thanked them for sticking with the program and for being civically engaged at such a young age.
The next meeting of the Kenton City Council will be March 11th, 2019 at 7 o’clock in Council chambers.
