Council approves taser funding request

GREENFIELD — The Greenfield City Council this week preliminarily approved a funding request for new Tasers for the Greenfield Police Department.

Police Chief Jeff Rasche asked council members to allocate about $91,600 from the city’s Local Option Income Tax fund — reserved for public safety-related expenses — to purchase 44 new Tasers for the department’s officers.

The request will go before the council once more July 26 before the Tasers can be purchased.
