ROSSFORD - Rossford City Council in a special meeting Monday gave Police Chief Glenn Goss the go ahead to apply for a COPS grant to cover part of the cost of hiring a new police officer.
Over the four years of the grant the cost of paying the new officer will fall more and more on the city.
City Administrator Ed Ciecka said that in the first year the city's share of the cost will be $27,000, rising to $97,000 in the fourth year.
This would represent overall as much as a 35-percent savings for the city, Jerry Staczek, chairman of the public safety committee, said.
The vote in favor was unanimous.
At a meeting earlier this month members of council objected to the application being brought before the body without having been reviewed by the appropriate committees.
Both the public safety and finance committees have since reviewed the measure and endorsed it.
