Public Comments are Requested for...

The City of Crawford is in the process of renewing the contract with Dawes County for Law Enforcement Services provided by the Dawes County Sheriff's Office.  Mayor Connie Shell would like your comments on whether you feel three (3) Deputies is good for the town or if you want to cut back to only two (2) Deputies, knowing that there will be more times when there is no coverage. With only two (2) Deputies there would be 88 hours a week with no coverage. With three (3) Deputies there would be 48 hours a week with no coverage.

The Council will be meeting with the Dawes County Commissioners August 9th to discuss this matter and then will discuss it at the Crawford City Council's August 11th budget workshop and would appreciate any and all comments and input beforehand. Please call Mayor Shell at (308) 615-9676 with your comments and input on this matter. Input and comments are encouraged throughout the year to be better informed from the community on how you feel your tax dollars are being spent, prior to discussing all the budgets for the following fiscal year.
