Brownton loses one part-time officer, hires a replacement at council meeting

The Brownton City Council accepted the resignation of a part-time police officer and hired another part timer at its July 5 meeting.
Part-time officer Brandon Traxler has resigned, and the City Council voted to hire Kenny Peterson as a new part-time officer.
Peterson will complement the police department’s part-time police chief, Ken Bauer, and full-time officer, Logan Anderson.
In other police business, Bauer reported that security cameras have been purchased for the Brownton Community Center. The City Council hopes that installation of the cameras will help deter some of the damage and vandalsim that have been occurring during events at the center.
Also discussed was a continuing blight issue on First Avenue S. The city has been prosecuting the resident for blight, and Bauer said that new photos of the blight issue have been sent to the judge and city attorney. The city is still waiting to hear about its options, Bauer said.
