EVSC's Security Coordinator goes before Evansville City Council to answer questions about why the school corporation apparently hasn't been paying the city for some of its security services.

Council members say they learned the corporation wasn't paying for some of the officers during budget talks.

There are four school liaison officers within the city limits.

Right now, the city pays for those officers.

The EVSC says it does pay for 54 off-duty officers that are split among city high schools.

Council members thought the school corporation had a contract for security services, but the school corporation says they've been without one for years.

"We have a great working relationship with EPD I mean we give some they give us this service that is vital and needed but at this time it's been six years since there's been any money exchanged."

Council members say they do want to continue providing the EVSC with school liaison officers but some say a new contract needs to be drafted and signed.

The Winnecke Administration says they'd rather continue supplying security under the current, contract-free method keeping the "status quo".
