Faced with the need for budget cuts, the Elko New Market City Council voted to get rid of its police department.

The department employed two full-time and six part-time officers. It’s 2009 budget was $329,806.

Earlier this year, the council heard from citizens concerned about what the move would mean for the city’s safety. And, the council previously considered other options, like possibly trimming the police department’s budget instead of doing away with it.

In the end, the Thursday night vote was 3-to-2 in favor of dissolving the department, effective May 13.

Deb Crosby says, “it’s hit a nerve with a lot of people.”
