" There comes a time in your
life, when you walk away from
all the drama and people who
create it. You surround yourself
with people who make you laugh.
Forget the bad, and FOCUS ON
THE GOOD. Love the people
who treat you right, and pray for
the ones who don't. Life is too
short to be ANYTHING BUT 
HAPPY. Falling down is part of
life, getting back up is living".

DPOA Notices
The Association was informed that the 8% pay increase will NOT be in effect for the October 3 pay check and that issue must be addressed with the EM. Mike Hall of City Labor assures the Association that the union dues deduction issue will be resolved prior to the next check. The reimbursement of the excess dues will then be handled by the Association once the problem is indeed rectified. The Association will be meeting early this week with the EM to resolve the payroll issue and will relay the results of that meeting accordingly. Thank you for your patience and understanding as the association continues to fight to resolve these issues and assure that our members receive what is owed to them
