Election mailers from postal service doesn’t effect Clay County residents

Residents of Clay County may have, or most likely will be receiving a postcard in the mail from the United States Postal Service with instructions on voting by mail.

According to Clay County Clerk Deb Karnatz, this postcard has little effect on residents of the county as the entire county is already a “vote by mail” county, thus the information received from the USPS might not be accurate for Clay County voters.

All registered voters will have their ballots mailed directly to their mailing addresses 22 days prior to the Nov. 3 election.

Members of the Clay County Board of Supervisors, along with the Clay County Emergency Management office announced at the Tuesday, Sept. 8 board meeting that the building formally housing offices for the South Central Public Power District, located at 212 W. Fairfield in Clay Center will become the new home for the Clay County Communications Center.

According to EMA Coordinator Tim Lewis, “The board has considered this for a long time, even before I came on board, and in late July, they fast-tracked the effort to move our 911 dispatch and communications center out of the Clay County Jail Center.”

Lewis noted that this change is set to take place around Oct. 8, after remodeling and upgrades are made to the building.

Sutton police looks to add to staff roster

Sutton police looks to add to staff roster

This display of evidence covers just some of the active cases that the Sutton Police Department is currently investigating. Drug paraphernalia, along with ammunition and numerous weapons are involved with many cases that Sutton officers Tracey Landenberger and Mitch Meyer have been dealing with, adding to their collective hours of work in recent months. TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Potential burnout due to an increased caseload has spurred the City of Sutton and the Sutton Police Department to contemplate the addition of a third officer to the local department.

Sutton Police Chief Tracey Landenberger, and police officer Mitch Meyer both eluded to an increased caseload of any number of types of cases has led to both officers working no less than 60 hours per week, and at times more.

“It gets to wear on us when you’re working that much and I truly worry about burnout setting into both of us,” Landenberger noted.
