A program restricting Lexington police cruiser use is generating $220,000 in savings a year, but the figure falls far short of expectations.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Lexington Fayette Urban County Council is wondering what’s holding up contract negotiations between the city and public safety unions.

At a budget committee Tuesday, the council learned that the last collective bargaining meeting with police representatives was nearly three months ago on December 12.

“I guess I don’t feel the sense of urgency in why we’re not actively pushing and meeting and trying to get to some resolution so we can figure out how much it’s really going to cost us,” said Councilman Kevin Stinnett.
