The Riley County Law board has passed the 2012 Riley County police budget on Thursday night in a special board meeting.
Riley County Police Director Bradley Schoen’s contract was renewed for another year, and he told KMAN he’s satisfied with the new budget which hires two new police officers, and two civilians.
The two civilians will take the places of two officers who are currently working in those positions, and allow them to get back out onto the streets.
Director Schoen’s contract was also renewed for the year.
Riley County Law Board Chair Karen McCulloh told KMAN her thoughts on the new budget.
