I have just asked Councilman Robert Garcia to call a meeting of the City Council committee on Public Safety as soon as possible so that we can discuss and review the continued "brown out" of fire stations while the city has realized a continued increase in oil revenue due to the continued high price of oil.
Additionally, I will be scheduling a "Community Conversation" in the 5th District to discuss the staffing of fire trucks and stations and the standards set nationally.
Unfortunately, again another proposed budget cut is being leaked out to the news media before the City Council has even seen the budget.
Knowing these cuts to public safety continue and may increase, I think it is urgent to have a community conversation on these issues.
