June 28, 2013

I am happy to report that on June 4th the City Council adopted a new, three-year fiscal plan that will allow City services to be restored in a prudent, phased-in fashion after the substantial reductions imposed during the height of the recession.  A key component of this new stability plan is the three-year labor agreement reached between the City and our largest employee groups.  I am pleased to report that, during the next three years, we will eliminate all un-paid furlough days and restore most services to the community.  I am grateful for the sacrifices everyone made these last three years, including our residents and employees; these sacrifices allowed us to emerge fiscally stronger today.  Our journey to full economic recovery will still take some time.  However, for the first time in several years, we are confident about our bright economic future.

Police Services Contract

Like us on Facebook


The City contracts with the Napa County Sheriff's office to provide law enforcement services in American Canyon.  At their June 18 meeting, the City Council entered into a new agreement with the Sheriff's office to provide these services until 2016.  This contract benefits the City in many ways.  Most notably, despite being a small city, we have full access to the Sheriff's fully trained and equipped investigative bureau, SWAT team, search and rescue operations, and more.  Did you know your Police Department has 18 Police Officers, including officers assigned to the schools, motorcycle traffic enforcement, and K9?  As part of the contract, you are also served by a state of the art public safety dispatch center.  If you want to know more about the Police Department, click here.  To see the April 2013 crime statistics report, click here.
