An interlocal agreement with the Sunnyside School District was unanimously approved by the Sunnyside City Council this past Monday.
The council agreed to have the city pay $125,000 annually for two school resource officers.
The city will bill the schools $10,416 monthly for the school district's half of the cost for the SROs.
The agreement is for the 2011-12 school year with the understanding the school district will seek levy funding for a third officer during a special election next February.
