Sheriff says need for deputies is urgent
Varga frustrated by board’s plan to do feasibility study
DIXON – Sheriff John Varga’s frustration is growing, he told members of the Lee County executive committee Thursday.
Varga has been telling County Board members for months that he wants to hire two new deputies, positions once in his budget. The department now has 13 patrol deputies; 4 years ago it had 15, but the board stopped funding two of the positions.
At Thursday’s finance committee meeting, the sheriff learned that a possible study on his department’s needs might take 6 to 9 months.
