DESCRIPTION

Sylvan Lake officials discuss a millage proposal, including within the discussion a possible sharing of services/contracting with Bloomfield Township.

TRANSCRIPT

  • Part one- Police Department Referendum. Fund public safety services or outsource the Police Department?

    Part two-Michigans and Sylvan Lakes dilemma due to the Headlee Amendment and Proposal AAnd Actions already taken by Sylvan Lake.

  • This November, residents of Sylvan Lake will be asked to vote on a Public Safety charter amendment that will allow the City to levy up to 5.0 mills for 10 years.

    The revenue generated from the millage is needed to fund Public Safety which includes Police, Fire, EMS and Dispatch services.

  • It allows Sylvan Lake to maintain the police force and the city through 2017 and beyond even with our most negative projections.

    The savings generated by outsourcing police only delays the need to ask for approval of a smaller millage if our projections are correct.

    If the current proposal fails it is projected a millage of 2-3 mills will be needed within three years to avoid major deficits even with the police outsourced.

  • Full Time Police Chief Full Time Lieutenant One FT Patrol officer (reduced from 3 FT)Part Time officers are used to fill remaining positions minimizing cost to the City.Unpaid Reserve Officers used to augment existing patrol and services.

  • Reserve Officers donate their time to the City of Sylvan Lake. They wish to donate their time for community service and enjoy being involved with law enforcement.They need hours of service to maintain their accreditation.

    All Reserve Officers have graduated from an approved academy and paid for this training on their own.

    They have completed at least 40 hours of on the job training with a Certified Police Officer.

  • They are another set of eyes and ears in the City.

    They wear a Sylvan Lake Uniform and Badge

    They patrol the streets, trail, bridge over Telegraph and our parks and businesses, and perform many additional duties.

    In July they provided over 500 hours to the City at no cost to the tax payers this included the July 3rd Fireworks where 22 officers were on duty.

  • Patrol in and around Sylvan LakeOn weekdays there are generally 2 or 3 officers on duty (including the Chief) and various unpaid reserves; patrolling, performing investigations, traffic control, appearing at the prosecutors office and court, training, planning, responding to calls and requests, and clerical duties.

    On afternoons, midnights and weekends, there is generally one paid officer and various unpaid reserve officers on duty.

  • Patrol in and around Sylvan LakeThere are typically two duty rosters during the week on days. 7 a.m. 3 p.m. (2 or 3 officers)All patrol. The Chief patrols and the additional officer is specifically tasked with traffic and commercial vehicle enforcement.Patrol and Administration. The chief is performing administrative duties, one officer on patrol and one part time officer tasked with traffic and commercial vehicle enforcement.The officer tasked with traffic and commercial vehicle enforcement is revenue neutral due to the revenue generated from tickets.

  • Patrol in and around Sylvan LakeAfternoons-3 p.m. 11p.m.Patrol by either a full time or part time officer.Additional patrol is sometimes provided by a volunteer reserve officer. Midnights-11p.m. 7 a.m.Patrol by either a full time or part time officer.Additional patrol is sometimes provided by a volunteer reserve officer.

  • Outsource to:Oakland County SheriffWest Bloomfield TownshipBloomfield TownshipWaterford Township

    Shared Services:With Keego Harbor Outsourcing to Oakland County Sheriff or combining departments

  • Out sourcing police services can reduce public safety costs if police patrol is reduced.Low transition costs since police services would be provided by an existing police department.

    Shared servicesShared services with Keego Harbor were estimated to reduce costs by approximately $30,000 per city if one patrol officer was assigned to Sylvan Lake 24/7.

    High cost for transition since a new department must be formed.

  • Outsource police services to Bloomfield Township.

    Contract amount determined by the taxable value of Sylvan Lake and then multiplied by Bloomfield Townships public safety millage for police services.

    Projected millage of 3.1146 mills to determine contract amount.

  • Provide patrol in and around the city and provide other police services as required. Bloomfield township is divided into 4 patrol areas. Sylvan lake would be patrolled by the squad car patrolling the northwest portion of Bloomfield Township. DTE is included in this area.

  • The two-mill increase that was approved by Sylvan Lake voters in 2009 is no longer producing any real increased revenue to the city.

    Why? The taxable value of property has decreased dramatically which in turn reduces revenue.
