The uncertainty is over. Claremont City Council has imposed contracts on the city's 2 police associations, officially ending a 5-month stalemate in front of a full house at the council chambers. The final decision was made Tuesday night following an impasse called over 2011-2012 terms and conditions of employment between the 2 groups in August. Failed negotiations have been ongoing since spring. The Claremont Police Officers and Police Management Associations will begin paying 6 percent of their total 9 percent Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) contributions with a 1.5 percent Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA).

The Claremont City Council will discuss the police impasse in open session next week for the first time since negotiations began. The city proposes the council adopt a resolution that will have police paying 6 percent of their Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) contribution within the first year. This PERS amount will replace the previously proposed 3 percent. The 1.5 percent Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) will still be a part of the contract. As a resolution adopted by the city council draws nearer, emotions are being stirred on both sides of the line.
