"Nametag Allowance: Is it a waste of money?
Police Officers in Lowell get paid $450 a year to wear their nametags. The city spends more than $110,000 each year on the nametag allowance. It's in the contracts between the city and the police unions. Those contracts are up at the end of June. Do you think the nametag allowance should stay in the new contracts? Call Lowell City Manager John Cox at 978-970-4000 to voice your opinion."
