FAIRFIELD — The Solano Community College governing board voted unanimously Wednesday to have the Sheriff’s Office take over its campus police department.
The annual cost is estimated at more than $980,000. The majority is salaries for five full-time employees and an additional 8.296 part-time hours. The board had three proposals to ponder ranging from $607,497 annually to the one they approved. The mid-range proposal would have cost $815, 360.
The agreement expires on June 30, 2017, unless terminated, or extended, prior to that.
The college has moved toward the takeover for two years.
Board members also voted unanimously to approve the Measure Q Bond Spending Plan that totals $348 million. Almost $88 million will be spent on the Fairfield campus and includes two phases of renovation for the performing arts building and the science building.
Voters approved the measure in 2012.
The board gave its permission to enter into agreement for marketing and consulting services. The total is not to exceed $75,000 and will be paid with $50,000 in foundation funds. The remainder will come from the general fund.
