The City of Eagle Lake says following discussion at its regularly scheduled meeting on November 4th, the Mayor and City Council have scheduled a special meeting for Monday, November 18th at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers for the purpose of allowing public input on a proposal to restructure the police department that would permit for the addition of a 3rd full-time police officer position without significantly increasing the overall police department budget and no resulting increase to the tax levy.

The proposal involves eliminating the chief of police position and contracting with the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Department for Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) duties.
