It’s a bit of a scramble. We understand the nostalgic reasons for wanting to hold onto a police force to call your own. But the practical reasons to do so have disappeared. So have many of the members of the force, down to 11 officers from the former 20. It’s time for Sierra Madreans to move on and be served by the Sheriff’s Department. And it’s time for City Hall to follow its own timeline on the utility tax and allow it to go back down to the level proposed rather than be hiked again.
Sierra Madre citizens should vote no on Measure UUT, and then work with the City Council to allocate resources to parks and the library rather than propping up the old PD.
