The decision has been made. The West Burlington School Board will look to hire a school resource officer.


However, Superintendent Dave Schmitt says it will only be part time.   If the .4 FTE is approved by the city, it will cost the school district $30,000, unlike the full-time position which would cost close to $48,000.


The West Burlington City Council meets tomorrow(Weds) night at 6.   The district  hope to have an SRO ready to start after this summer.
