Council approves 2012 contract for police services

The De Soto City Council unanimously voted to approve a $428,000 contract with the Johnson County Sheriff's Department for police services in 2012, a nearly 7 percent reduction from expected costs.

The original amount set aside for the services in the 2012 city budget was $455,000, according to City Administrator Pat Guilfoyle, but that number was reduced thanks to fewer calls in De Soto in recent years. The city will still be receiving the same service as in the past, Guilfoyle said.
