Nevis disbands police department
Nevis marked an historical moment this week, the council disbanding the city police department.
A constable has served the village for more than half a century.
The move came as a cost-saving measure, with an anticipated $18,000 trimmed from the city budget.
"It was a difficult cut," Paul Schroeder said of eliminating police chief Ed Franckowiak's part-time position. "We appreciate what Ed has done for the community."
