POMPANO BEACH, Florida
According to the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel the Pompano Beach City Commission gave initial approval to a $37.25 million contract with the Broward Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday night (6/22/10). About 50 BSO Deputies were at the meeting. There were two commissioners who voted against the proposed deal, Hardin and Dockswell.
There will be a second public hearing scheduled for July 6, 2010. If passed the contract would last until Sept. 30, 2014. As the pompano contract is closer to being signed, Sheriff Lamberti will be able to move forward with contract s with the other Broward county cities that have contracts up for renewal.

This initial step forward should allow the Pompano Beach Deputies to worry a bit less about their future and supporting their families and get back to focusing on their everyday responsibilities.
