The Marshall County Board of Supervisors approved eight agreements with towns in the county to continue to provide law enforcement for the next fiscal year through the Sheriff's Office. The approval came at a special end-of-the-fiscal-year meeting by the supervisors Friday.
Area towns agree to pay the Sheriff's Office for the service based on a rate of $55 per household in the town per year.
The agreements for services for July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, included Albion ($12,375), Ferguson ($3,025), Laurel ($7,150), St. Anthony ($2,695), Clemons ($3,520), Gilman ($17,380), Liscomb ($7,425) and Haverhill ($3,795).
As part of the agreement, the Sheriff's Office responds to calls in these towns, has deputies do random patrols and provides staff for special events.
"We provide all public safety needs for the communities," Sheriff Ted Kamatchus said.
The supervisors also approved two change of contracts for county employees at the meeting. Jonathan Bailey is now the system administrator for the Information Services Department at an annual salary of $57,980, and Sherry Giannetto is now the assistant supervisor in the Treasurer's Office at a pay rate of $18.50 an hour.
The next regular meeting of the supervisors will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the courthouse.
