Akeley votes to advertise for part-time police officer
The Akeley Council, convening a special meeting Tuesday, agreed to advertise for a part-time law enforcement officer through October, the issue to be revisited in September.
Brian Hitchcock had asked the council to consider the measure at last week's meeting, noting the city had budgeted for the position.
Mayor Jennifer Mitchell said the need for law enforcement increases in the summer with additional traffic and children out of school.
