JAMESTOWN EYES POLICE BUDGET

JAMESTOWN -- Looking for ways to increase revenue and cut spending, the City Council's Finance Committee reviewed the Police Department budget for 1997 Wednesday.

Among the items discussed were getting a designation from Chautauqua County as a south county emergency dispatch center and restoring some downtown parking meters removed earlier this year.

Finance Chairman Andrew Johnson asked Police Chief William MacLaughlin to have specific figures by Monday.

"We want some more detail on those projections," Johnson said.

The Council is trying to cut a 13 percent tax increase proposed as part of Mayor Richard Kimball's $21.7 million budget.
