If you don't know why that would be significant in Saratoga Springs, read here.
Also, I spoke to Public Safety Commissioner Christian Mathiesen the other day about salaries and overtime for a story over the weekend on City Salaries (which now has a list of the salaries for all city employees who make more than $10,000), and we talked a little about downtown problems.
It didn't really fit in the story at the time, but he said according to Public Safety numbers, $135,000 in salary and overtime is "directly attributable to additional patrols needed" for the Caroline Street bar district.
He added that many of the department's injuries are caused on Caroline Street late at night "when people become emboldened and offer resistance to police." (They have at least two officers out right now for it)
