A settlement agreement between the U.S. Department of Justice and the Portland Police Bureau could cost the city $5.8 million in the first year.

That figure is included in the financial analysis of the agreement that will be considered by the City Council on Thursday. It accompanies a resolution submitted by Mayor Sam Adams to accept the agreement.

According to the analysis, the additional money includes more than $3.2 million in new spending by the police, over $842,000 by other city bureaus, and over $1.7 million in contract costs.

The analysis does not say how the city will find or raise the money. It could be required in the budget that takes effect on July 1, 2012.
