Essential to Fulfill its Mission

Currently, the Old Saybrook Police Commission operates without a line item in the budget. I recommend a $50,000 annual budget plus an additional $15,000 budget for legal fees. I urge all taxpayers and voters who want an independent police commission to oversee the Old Saybrook Police Department with accountability and transparency to contact First Selectman Carl P. Fortuna, members of the Board of Finance, and Police Commissioners, informing them that these legal fees and an annual budget for the Police Commission are essential for the commission to function and fulfill its mission.
