Moberly Budget Discussions Will Look At Police Staff Shortage

The presentation of the next budget will occur during a work session of the Moberly City Council tonight. City Manager Brian Crane says they plan to stick with the salary implementation schedule, but discussion on how to help the police force will need to take place.

Crane says the city has taken a balanced approach to recruiting officers.

Crane says they aren’t getting applicants.

A proposed three percent rate increase for sewer and water is also part of the City of Moberly’s new budget.
