Austin Council restores stipends to police officers
Starting Sunday, Austin Police Officers will see an increase in their paychecks. The Austin City Council voted 10-1 on Thursday, Feb. 15, to restore most of the stipends officers used to receive under the city's contract with the police association. Back in December, the council rejected a five-year, $82 million renewal of the city's labor contract with the Austin Police Association. At the time, some members said the deal was too costly and lacked transparency.
