Lima police handling more calls than in previous years.
Lima city council tonight hearing the police department's annual report from major Angel Cortes.
He replaces major Richard Shade who retired earlier this year.
In the report, Cortes notes that despite a reduction in manpower in 2011, the police responded to more incidences than the previous year.
In other business, council approved legislative changes which will allow Lima residents to have bonfires in the city, with the required permits.
Council also took the first step toward establishing water service to Westminster, Rudolph foods and nearby properties.
This will result in the creation of the Southeast Regional Waterline Improvement Area.
