CITY OF PEWAUKEE -
The Pewaukee Village Board has approached the City of Pewaukee
with an offer to provide police services.
The City of
Pewaukee currently has a contract with the Waukesha County
Sheriff’s Department for police services, which the city
established after disbanding its department. The Common Council
was set Monday to discuss a letter sent by the Pewaukee Village
Board offering to provide those same services, but the meeting
was canceled due to lack of a quorum.
A letter dated
Feb. 3 and signed by Village President Jeff Knutson reads:
“I would like
to take this opportunity to request that the City of Pewaukee
allow the Village of Pewaukee, upon full consideration by the
Village Board, an opportunity to provide a proposal for police
services as an alternate to its contract with the Sheriff’s
Department. This would be a chance for two communities with the
same name to work together, on a contract basis, for police
Cheri Enters, who sent a response to Knutson on Feb. 10, said
she requested an item be placed on the council agenda concerning
the matter. Enters declined to discuss it further Monday night,
saying she would like to wait until the next time its on the
Administrator Tammy LaBorde said the village also offered to
provide contracted police services in 2009 at the same time that
the city decided to use the Sheriff’s Department.
The next City
of Pewaukee Common Council meeting will be March 3.
