The Spokane City Council voted unanimously Monday night not to ratify a contract agreement between the city and the Police Guild.

That agreement would have given raises, retroactively, to officers all way the back to 2016.

The seven-zero vote came as council members said the proposal doesn’t give the city enough authority over the actions of the officers in the department.
