more than a few data pointsunder
Coto’s belt, we can officially declare that there is a positive downward
trendin the number of Coto
residents arrested by the CHP since we started this report!
Varo for Mayor Committee has been using the flawed argument that the reason
for turning Coto into a city – and terminating the CHP contract – is
that Coto would then be able to negotiate directly for pro-active Sheriff
services.The fact of the
matter is that the Orange County Board of Supervisors negotiates with the
Sheriff the official rates.All
local cities can do then,is
get more or less patrol services at the negotiated rates.Going rates for a Sheriff’s “foot on the street” is roughly
$110,000.00/year – which is what Coto currently pays for the CHP’s
pro-active traffic patrol.
