Wilkowski calling on Finkbeiner to prevent police layoffs

TOLEDO (WTOL) - A candidate for Toledo mayor is hoping to prevent police layoffs.

Keith Wilkowski is calling on Mayor Carty Finkbeiner and Dan Wagner, president of the Toledo Police Patrolman's Union (TPPA), to sit down immediately and work out an agreement to prevent Toledo cops from being laid off.

Wilkowski is delivering a letter to both men, which says doing nothing between now and a fact finder meeting set for May 28 is unacceptable.

Besides urging both city administrators and the TPPA to return to the bargaining table immediately, Wilkowski's proposing to bring in retired Ohio Supreme Court Justice Andy Douglas to mediate negotations.

Toledo City Council will meet this afternoon.

The mayor is urging council to implement major portions of his budget plan to reduce the number of layoffs.
