A two-and-a-half year battle between City Hall and Jacksonville's Police Union comes to an end.
Overwhelming support by police and corrections officers for a contract with the city, that would doc officer pay between 2-thousand and 4-thousand dollars per year. But, FOP President Nelson Cuba says there was a compromise.
"The city wanted a 4%, they wanted to freeze the STEPS, so it was a give-and-take by both parties," says Cuba.
Mayor Alvin Brown calls it a great compromise between the city and the FOP, and a win for taxpayers.
"This agreement will save the city $5.5-million this year, $7.3-million in each of the next two physical years," says Brown.
The contract still faces a vote by the Jacksonville City Council.
