Council approves additional part-time summer hours for police

May 9, 2018

Lake Benton Police Chief Tony Sievert presented the police report at Monday night’s meeting. He is re­questing that the city add eight additional part-time hours each week during the summer months, June 1 through Sept. 1. “This is to ensure the citizens are getting more coverage during the busy months. Lake Benton’s call volume increases during summer with tourists that come to enjoy what Lake Ben­ton has to offer, as well as because of the warmer weather,” Sievert said. The council approved the extra hours.
