Dunkerton balances budget without eliminating police department

Posted:
DUNKERTON (KWWL) -

The City of Dunkerton has balanced their budget this year, without cutting the city's police department.

In January, Mayor Mike Schares asked the Black Hawk County Sheriff about the possibility of the sheriff's office taking over law enforcement responsibilities, but later in the month, the city council voted against the motion.

According to the city council meeting minutes, the city has instead trimmed other parts of the budget and has increased water and sewer rates to fill the budget gap.

The final budget was passed Monday.
