The police department spent the most amount of time on issues that warranted citations, the data showed. More than 430 moving citations were issued last year, a slight decrease from the 451 citations issued in 2016. The agency says more than 260 moving citations have already been issued so far this year, and that number may increase as the police department focuses its efforts on enforcing an ordinance involving where and for how long RVs and trailers are allowed to park on city streets. Warning citations spiked in 2017 with 294 issued compared to 180 in 2016; 85 warning citations have already been handed out this year. At the council meeting last week, Miller said the data showed that “our officers are still out there, doing their job, and they’re doing a good job.”]]>
