Cities, county clash over law enforcement agreement


There was a lively discussion on April 13 at the Dakota City Council meeting about the upcoming law enforcement agreement between the county and the town. Pictured from left: Humboldt County Attorney Jon Beaty, DC Councilman Billy Fort, DC City Clerk Angelique Berry and HC Supervisor Jerry Haverly.

The debate over the contract language in the 28E agreement between Humboldt County and local towns regarding law enforcement coverage continued to heat up April 13, at a meeting of the Dakota City Council.

The Council invited Humboldt County Sheriff Dean Kruger, County Attorney Jon Beaty and Humboldt County Supervisor Chair Jerry Haverly to the meeting, to explain what they perceived as an “about face” regarding possible changes to the agreement.

Dakota City Mayor Don Faltinson and members of the Council believe the county should enforce city ordinances. Humboldt County Sheriff Dean Kruger listed reasons why that was not possible or practical for every town in the county.

“We heard from Jon (County Attorney Beaty) and Dean (Sheriff Kruger) that day (March 21) and they believed that the contract would work the way it was written,” Haverly said.
