Cd'A City Council expected to approve contract on Tuesday
The Coeur d'Alene City Council is expected to approved a new contract with the Coeur d'Alene Police Association on Tuesday.
The three-year deal includes several cost of living adjustments and would be effective Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, 2025. It follows two negotiations meetings and executive sessions in the past few weeks.
A petition for judicial review was filed by Kovacs last week in district court. It alleges that Commissioners Bill Brooks, Chris Fillios and Leslie Duncan exceeded their authority when they made the “unprecedented” decision to slash Kovacs’ pay. He alleges that, in doing so, commissioners have impeded his ability to perform the duties of his office.
