Nowthen: Police or Less Police

| No Comments

The Anoka County city has to decide between a 6 percent property tax increase to fund for law enforcement coverage or receive coverage for only true emergencies starting next year.

Currently, Nowthen does not pay anything and is the only city without a police department or a contract with a sheriff, The Republic said.

In an unofficial poll at a meeting Thursday, a "narrow majority said they would be willing to pay for a sheriff's contract," whereas others were less concerned, Star Tribune said.

"Crime is low," resident Debbie Mahutga said to Star Tribune, "What are you going to patrol, the cornfields?"
