According to this Mercury News article, the City of Palo Alto needs to cut a million dollars from the polcie and fire budget so they can hire a senior emergency planner who will make $233,000 a year. Planning is important and needed but when emergencies occur or disaster strikes, we're going to need cops and firemen, not planners. If times are tough, keep the boots on the ground and don't hire expensive managers.
