We have received several inquiries on how the February Board minutes were originally written. Once the displeasure was brought to our attention the minutes were pulled off the web site immediately. Our intention was not to offend or infuriate anyone. Fortunately several of the issues discussed have either been resolved or are currently being reviewed by Staff. Please accept our sincere apologies and be assured that procedures have been changed on the reviewing and posting of all documents. CSPPA Board & Office StaffRead More
After a thorough vetting process, the CSPPA Board Committee has endorsed the following candidates for the April 2015 election:
Mayor: John Suthers
City Council District 2: Larry Bagley
City Council At-large*: Merv Bennett, Glenn Carlson, Vickie Tonkins, Jariah Walker.
* There are only 3 seats At-Large open, however as the committee interviewed candidates we determined that there are actually 4 candidates that are stellar, who will represent public safety, we decided to endorse 4, allowing the voters to choose your favorite 3.
If you want to read the questionnaires that the candidates completed, there are copies available at each substation as well as at the PPA office. We want you to be informed.
PLEASE vote in this election. It really is important!Read More
Note of gratitude to Chief Carey, DC Smith & DC Niski. On Sunday March 15th I sent an email to Chief Carey requesting a meeting with him and the DCs if available, within the next couple of days. I needed to clarify and discuss some mishandlings of information through the CSPPA office. Chief Carey scheduled a meeting to meet with me on the afternoon of March 16th which was attended by both Deputy Chiefs as well. I know for a fact all three had prior engagements so for them to find the time to meet with me on behalf of the organization is greatly appreciated.

Keeping you up to speed, the current PPA office space is no longer viable for our needs and our lease expires May 31. Since our last lease was negotiated, commercial property rent has nearly doubled. As our long term members may remember, parts of your dues have been going towards a building fund for many years. Due to the current economic state, purchasing a building is far more fiscally responsible than leasing, however, the Board is exploring all avenues. For example, we have learned that renting an adequate facility would cost app. $1,500 more per month than purchasing the same building. The Board is looking into all options and member input is welcome. If you wish to opine, email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday March 20. Thank you.Read More
The CSPPA follows the published snow closures of Colorado Springs School District 11. If SD 11 has a closure for snow, the CSPPA will also be closed for the day. Likewise for 2 hour delays. Thank you for understanding. That makes 2 less cars on the road for you to worry about!
