By Thomas Dimopoulos | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — City Mayor Meg Kelly named three members to an independent advisory committee, as part of the New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative Plan 

“The committee has a dual role. Members will research and analyze how a Citizen’s Review Board will be implemented in Saratoga Springs and then provide the council with their findings for deliberation and decision this year,” city Mayor Kelly said on June 1. “The second item is: members will advise the police chief and the commissioner of Public Safety in implementing the recommendations adopted in the resolution.” 

The three members appointed are: Charles “Chuck” Caputo, Kimberly Galvin, and Jason Golub. 

The advisory committee will provide public progress reports of their work at the first regular council meeting each month. Their first report is slated to take place July 6.
