New Orleanians to vote on separation of Inspector General and Independent Police Monitor offices on April 9



  New Orleanians will be back in the voting booth on April 9 to decide a proposed City Charter amendment that would separate the offices of Inspector General and the Independent Police Monitor, giving each financial and operational independence after heated discourse between the two offices.

  The New Orleans City Council's Governmental Affairs Committee set the ordinance aside Oct. 22 but the full council will vote later this year. District A Councilwoman Susan Guidry warned, however, that the council could be "setting ourselves up for having to go to the voters again" rather than drafting a broad bill that the council "can tweak without having to go to the voters every time."
