Auburn Council approves law enforcement contract on split vote

Downtown Auburn

(KLZA)-- The Auburn City Council approved renewing a contract for the Nemaha County Sheriff's Department to provide law enforcement services for the community when they met last week.

Renewal of the contract was tabled the previous meeting when the Council vote was split on the renewal proposal. The community of Auburn will pay $400 thousand for the services for the next year.

The vote to renew was 3-2 with Council members Tom Clark and Shawn Clark casting nay votes.

Council member Tom Clark told his fellow Council members he was opposed to the contract due to what he feels is insufficient enforcement in several areas including overnight parking on city streets, people sleeping in vehicle, unlicensed vehicles and yard complaints.
