Foley City Council To Consider Police Options

Foley City Hall

FOLEY — The clock is ticking on a joint agreement between Benton County and the City of Foley that provides police services to the city.

The Sheriff’s Department has been policing the city streets since 2004, however that will come to an end at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday — if they can’t work out a new contract.

The Foley City Council will discuss the issue at their meeting tonight (Tuesday).  Interim City Administrator Sarah Brunn says they’re considering a combination option using the Sheriff’s Department and also using a security company.

The Sheriff’s Department currently patrols the city 17 hours a day, at a cost of about $300,000 a year.  Foley is looking at ways to cut those costs, due to cuts in their Local Government Aid from the state.
