The idea here, and it may be an evolving concept, seems to be local and diverse and not as much of an emphasis on the stages and what happens there at the expense of those who stay after the run and those who come for the music and the arts.
To dot the I on that point, 901Fest also includes an air show.

89. Godwin Optimistic About Cop Policy -

In a month’s time, the debate about how to hire more Memphis police officers seems to bear out staying at least within Shelby County.

Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin said this week that he expects to have a full complement of nearly 2,600 police officers by 2011.

90. Cop Hiring Incentives Clear Council - A month after the Memphis City Council voted down a plan to hire police officers within a 20 miles radius of Shelby County, the council Tuesday approved a package of hiring incentives that keeps the hiring within the county.

The incentives were passed on an eventful day at City Hall in which Mayor Willie Herenton announced the administration is moving the hiring of police officers from the police department to the city’s human resources department.

Some council members who opposed the ability to hire police officers who didn’t live in the city or Shelby County have also questioned how the police department was hiring officers.

In announcing the move, Herenton denied the police hiring process has been unfair.

Council member Bill Morrison proposed the new incentives that would apply to officers hired who apply after Jan. 1. The incentives are:

-- Up to $5,000 on any existing student loans.

-- $3,500 in moving expenses if the new officer moves within Shelby County.

-- $5,000 in moving expense if the new officer moves within Memphis.

The incentives would remain in force for those hired until the department reaches its full compliment.

Morrison removed plans to include a hiring bonus that had drawn opposition from Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin. Godwin as well as Herenton argued a bonus would hurt morale by appearing to give preferential treatment to some officers.

Godwin said his department appears to be on target to hire its full compliment of nearly 2,600 officers by 2011. He also said a local advertising campaign that began last month has produced a torrent of applications.

Some council members contended that the police department needed the ability to hire officers who live outside Shelby County to meet the goal. Other council members were just as adamant that police officers should at least live within Shelby County and preferably in Memphis.

The plan to allow hiring within 20 miles outside the county line failed on a 6-7 vote.

Morrison’s resolution passed Tuesday on an 11-2 vote. Only council members Joe Brown and Wanda Halbert voted no.

Read more about the latest chapter in the council’s ongoing debate about beefing up the police force in Thursday’s edition of The Daily News.

The council also approved a resolution on a unanimous vote that would end the city’s share of funding for the local Health Department at the end of this month.

The pull out of city funding in the jointly funded department may not be final however. Shelby County commissioners are expected to discuss today a resolution that would extend talks between city and county leaders about the joint operation through January. Council members question why the city of Memphis helps fund the department but no other municipalities in the county provide funding.

Council members took the action in case the talks go nowhere, so the city won’t be bound under contract for another fiscal year.

The city and county jointly fund several government agencies. The health department is the only one governed by a contract. The other shared entities are provided for in the annual budget process which begins in April.

Herenton provided the council with a decidedly downbeat preview of what is to come in April. He confirmed earlier reports in The Daily News that his administration would seek to cut the number of city employees with a buyout plan. The specific plan is to cut 100 positions from the city payroll through one time only buyouts to counter a $25 million budget shortfall projected for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

An $8.8 million city budget deficit is projected for the current fiscal year that ends June 30.

91. Council Approves Cop Hiring Incentives - A month after the Memphis City Council voted down a plan to hire police officers within a 20 miles radius of Shelby County, the council tonight approved a package of hiring incentives that keeps the hiring within the county.

The incentives were passed on an eventful day at City Hall in which Mayor Willie Herenton announced the administration is moving the hiring of police officers from the police department to the city’s human resources department.

Some council members who opposed the ability to hire police officers who didn’t live in the city or Shelby County have also questioned how the police department was hiring officers.

In announcing the move, Herenton denied the police hiring process has been unfair.

Council member Bill Morrison proposed the new incentives that would apply to officers hired who apply after Jan. 1. The incentives are:

-- Up to $5,000 on any existing student loans.

-- $3,500 in moving expenses if the new officer moves within Shelby County.

-- $5,000 in moving expense if the new officer moves within Memphis.

The incentives would remain in force for those hired until the department reaches its full compliment.

Morrison removed plans to include a hiring bonus that had drawn opposition from Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin. Godwin as well as Herenton argued a bonus would hurt morale by appearing to give preferential treatment to some officers.

Godwin said his department appears to be on target to hire its full compliment of nearly 2,600 officers by 2011. He also said a local advertising campaign that began last month has produced a torrent of applications.

Some council members contended that the police department needed the ability to hire officers who live outside Shelby County to meet the goal. Other council members were just as adamant that police officers should at least live within Shelby County and preferably in Memphis.

The plan to allow hiring within 20 miles outside the county line failed on a 6-7 vote.

Morrison’s resolution passed tonight on an 11-2 vote. Only council members Joe Brown and Wanda Halbert voted no.

The council also approved a resolution on a unanimous vote that would end the city’s share of funding for the local Health Department at the end of this month.

The pull out of city funding in the jointly funded department may not be final however. Shelby County commissioners are expected to discuss Wednesday a resolution that would extend talks between city and county leaders about the joint operation through January. Council members question why the city of Memphis helps fund the department but no other municipalities in the county provide funding.
