This reporter as usual needs to get her facts straight. The reason the LT got more pay under the old council is overtime. Why you ask because the city council tried to destroy the police by forcing officers to leave. The BPPD was short handed and many officers worked overtime. If you look that wasn't their base pay. The surrounding city's are idiots for over paying for management and will all pay the price later. This reporter never reports on important things it's just when she is called to print lies about a few cry babies who want more money than they are
Hey how about that Pacheco trying to get brownie points for next years election by saying he wants to throw away more city money and give Taylor 30,000.00 more because other stupid city's pay more unbelievable. Pacheco's nose is so far up the Police chiefs butt I don't think he can breath.
The facts are in the reporter failed to report why other people were paid more if she really wants to be a reporter get your facts don't always believe the cry babies who think they are worth more money than they are.
If the reporter had checked Taylor's hours spent on the job she would find he is always late and leaves early and always gone somewhere you would say he's over paid and I would agree.
Please Tribune get better reporters who have the facts and don't come running everytime Taylor or Pacheco say they have a story.
How about a story of how much money Taylor spent on his office furniture, remodeling office and repainting. Please enough crying get to work and stop the whining and Pacheco your finished as a politician your BS has run out and no one trust you or believes you cant do anything except bull shit.

The tribune hires the dumbest reporters ever. The reason two LT were paid more in 2012 when the old council was there is because it was many hours of overtime dummy. The reporter forgot to mention the LT base pay didn't she. Oh you ask why because Taylor and Pacheco were crying the chief isn't getting enough money. If you total the hours Taylor is really there working you would say he is over paid . The chief comes in late and leaves early he is only a delagator not a worker.
The tribune prints how much other chiefs get but again she forgets to tell you how many years the other chiefs were real police chiefs somewhere else. Taylor was only acting chief for a few months in his career so experience and track record is important.
Please Tribune spend some money and get real reporters who get the facts and I am sure Taylor and Pacheco gave the reporter the state controllers sheet to. It's obvious she wasn't told the overtime accounted for the high salaries. This was caused from the old council because of reducing police officers.

We have a rogue council person who wants to make political promises he can't keep and waste city money. This council person has no real job and has never kept a job over 6 months. He wasted numerous hours of staff time to raise the chiefs pay which failed and he keeps Marie at Parks and Rec on a 90,000.00 a year pay just because he likes her. The lady has had all job duties removed from her and is just a secretary that should be making half of this. It's time to stop this out of control person.
His good buddy the chief slash city manager works so hard he had to take another vacation. The chief has been off more than he has worked these 6 months. I wonder how does he get it all done two jobs and never there.

The time for interim city manager is up and finished and so is the Pacheco leadership of city staff.
