Granite Falls City Council members voted on Nov. 30 to authorize Mayor Haroon Saleem to discuss a possible police services contract.
The city is considering the contract to help balance the 2012 budget.
A budget ordinance is scheduled to be adopted at the Dec. 14 council meeting. It’s not clear how quickly city officials might make a decision about the future of policing in Granite Falls.
After months of debate, the city of Snohomish made a final vote in November to contract for police service from the sheriff’s office.
In the fall, Mill Creek kicked around the idea for a couple of weeks but ultimately ditched it.
The sheriff’s office has police services contracts or partnerships in communities including Sultan, Gold Bar, Stanwood, Index and Darrington.
