Council Approves Community Liaison Position for Algona PD

–The Algona City Council approved a job description and gave the Algona Police Department the go-ahead to create a Community Liaison position during their meeting Monday evening. 

The council had planned to discuss the position during a work session prior to the meeting, but time constraints prevented them from reaching that item on their agenda.  

The position will be full-time with a salary range of $45,000-$52,000 depending on qualifications. 

The council also approved allocating some $75,000 of ARPA funding to the Police Department for the purpose of funding personnel and operational expenses for the Law Enforcement Community Liaison position for the period from July 1 of 2023 to December 31 of 2024.
