CAMBRIDGE, Ohio — Two more K-9’s will be placed into service for the Cambridge Police Department following Monday night’s Cambridge City Council Finance Committee meeting.
Finance approved a request by Safety Director Rocky Hill for permission to accept the donation of K-9’s Breeze and Drago for use by the Cambridge Police Department. The pair and their handlers, Ptl. Jarrod Eubanks and Ptl. Zach Smith, have completed their training and will join K-9 Luna and her handler, Lt. Karl Milam, on the force.
Chief Mark DeLancey says over $18,000 in donations to the FOP, along with drug seizure money, helped to put both dogs into service. Finance also okayed a request by Chief DeLancey to appropriate $500 from the Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce – Guernsey/Noble Safety Council into the Police Department equipment line item. DeLancey says the money will go into the K-9 program.
Finance approved a request by the City’s Water Superintendent to allow the administration to enter into partnership with Muskingum University to provide Environmental Science student a paid internship with the city. The student will make $12 to $15-per-hour.
And the committee okayed a request by the City Engineer to create an additional pay grade for the Engineering Tech position. The Tech will be paid at a rate of $17 per hour if holding an Associate’s degree or $22 per hour for a Tech with a Bachelor’s degree.
