Somers Board Approves Contract To Boost Law Enforcement

SOMERS — The Village Board has approved Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department law enforcement services and planning and development contracts for next year, but delayed voting on a proposed information technology contract at its meeting Tuesday night.

In late November, the board approved spending $223,753 next year for law enforcement services for two full-time shifts — an existing deputy and hiring an additional deputy who would begin work July 1.

Although the board unanimously approved the contract with the Sheriff’s Department, trustee Joseph Cardinali said he wanted to ensure that with the increase in patrol the need was justified.
