LEC board approves new agreement

By Staff | Aug 4, 2017

In 2018, a new agreement will take effect between Pierce County and the City of Rugby regarding their joint law enforcement center.

In a semi-annual meeting Monday evening at Rugby City Hall, the Law Enforcement Center board voted to approve the new agreement, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2018.

With a few changes, the agreement mirrors the previous agreement that went into effect in 2013.

The new agreement changes the date the Pierce County Sheriff sends an annual budget for review to May 1.

The agreement removes language regarding a tax levy for the LEC to go toward personnel salaries and operating expenses- as both come out of the general fund- and an insurance levy- which no longer exists. The agreement also removes language regarding “certified mail” as the means for serving notices of adding or amending agreement to city and county auditors.

In the agreement, the city pays the county $3,250 per month for operating expenses and $1,950 per year as a rental fee for office space, restrooms, break rooms, and the conference room.

Absent for the meeting were Rugby Mayor Arland Geiszler, Rugby City Attorney Bill Hartl and Rugby Ward 4 Councilman and board member Chuck Longie.

Meetings for the LEC board held on the last Mondays in January and July.
