A special meeting of the New Holstein Common Council is scheduled for Thursday, April 1 starting at 6 p.m. to discuss a possible intergovernmental jurisdictional agreement for shared services between the city and the Calumet County’s Sheriff’s Office.

The meeting is scheduled to go into closed session but an announcement could be forthcoming after returning to open session.

As reported in the April 1 issue of the Tri-County News, the action is necessary after the resignation of the New Holstein Police Department’s captain which will leave the department without a chief or captain and understaffed on officers. The city is considering contracting with the Sheriff’s Office short-term for some overnight coverage assistance as well as some management services.

The city’s Police and Fire Commission is pursuing the hiring of a new chief for the department.
