Aurora May Have To Raise Property Taxes For More Police Officers

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Homeowners in Aurora may be asked to pay higher property taxes to hire more police officers.

A city rule requires Aurora have two officers for every 1,000 residents. A proposed ballot measure in November would ask homeowners to raise property taxes to fill the gap.

They could also vote to scrap the two-officers per 1,000 residents rule.

The Aurora City Council will vote later this month on whether to put the measure on the ballot.

    Meanwhile the City of Aurora gives outrageous bonuses to Staff—while they lay off more staff at the end of this year and next year.

    What is the City DOING????
