EL PASO - Making the most with what you have. That's what the El Paso Police and Fire Departments tried to do when they made their new budget pitches today.
Chief Greg Allen led off with a powerpoint presentation to the city budget committee. Among his proposals, a regional police department in far east Fl Paso.
Fire department ideas include letting residents fill vacant fire inspector positions. Both departments say the goal is to improve public safety.
