Sheriff Moving to Hill
County commissioners voted 3-2 Tuesday to approve a lease agreement on offices in the former USDA building off Winter Show Road for the Barnes County Sheriff's Department.
The move was precipitated by complaints from Barnes County Sheriff Randy McClaflin and his deputies about health issues from lead and possible mold contamination in the Valley City Law Enforcement Building. McClaflin likes the idea of being near I94 since 80 percent of the department's calls are in that direction.
