The Riley County Law Board has scheduled a special meeting Monday afternoon where it’s expected to adopt the 2024 Riley County Police Department budget.

The meeting comes after board members on Tuesday tabled a decision, directing RCPD leadership to make cuts within the budget in order to maintain a 6.5% cost of living adjustment for employees and no greater than a 6% overall increase on the realized budget.

The most recent budget proposal included a 7.4% increase totaling $26.9 million on the realized budget. RCPD will propose three additional options that trim that down to approximately 7%, 6.5% and 6%. Those proposals are available here.

The latter option, would include funding just 30% of the remaining 50% salary survey, which was approved by the previous Law Board last year. The other proposals would trim the salary survey to 37 and 44%.

RCPD also noted that $1.4 million was removed from its needs assessment.

The Law Board will meet at 1:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall. By statute, the budget must be finalized on or before July 3.
