Negotiations around the corner for Monrovia PD and city?

I spotted this brief on our Web site today. There is also some interesting speculation on Foothill Cities Blog about what else to expect at tonight’s council meeting.

From the Tribune:

MONROVIA – City officials and Monrovia Police Officers Association (MPOA) representatives plan to meet Wednesday to resume contract talks, with association officials reporting Monday that the two sides could be close to an agreement.

Dieter Dammeier, an attorney representing the MPOA, said talks between the union and the city are “moving in a positive direction.”

Police are seeking raises they say will put Monrovia officers on par with what police in surrounding San Gabriel Valley cities receive in salaries and benefits. Earlier this year, however, after talks broke down, the city imposed a retroactive contract on its officers.

But Dammeier said Monday a tentative agreement could be in the works and could be agreed upon as early as this week.
