Though the city has been on a hiring freeze since February, Trenton administrators requested the freeze be lifted to hire two police officers, an assistant engineer and a part-time clerical position at the Waste Water Treatment Plant and to provide a promotion in the Department of Public Works.

Councilman Bill LeFever made a motion to increase the number of officer positions from two to three because the additional officer would reduce the number of overtime hours currently being used.
