King Council cancels police car orders, sets public comment session

(By Meghann Evans, The Stokes News) - “It’s going to be alright.” That is the message Mayor Jack Warren wanted the crowd to leave with from the King City Council meeting, which included discussion about controversial police department topics.

The comment came near the end of the council’s regular meeting on Monday night, after the council set a tentative date for a public comment session about the police department and voted to cancel a purchase order for two police cars.

The mayor said he had requested discussion be included on the agenda about setting a date to hold a public comment session about the possibility of the city contracting with the county to provide law enforcement services. At last month’s meeting the council voted to begin discussions with the county about the possibility.
