Aurora Mayor James Fisher is proposing a 1.2-mill safety levy to support the current and future needs of the police department that would appear on the May primary election ballot.

The issue was discussed Jan. 14 at City Councils committee of the whole meeting.

Fisher said the levy would generate $650,000 to $700,000 annually, and would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an additional $33 to $36 a year.

The levy, which is for five years, must be approved by Council by Feb. 6 to go on the May ballot.
