Valley City Auditor Avis Richter approved for circulation the petition calling for an ordinance to disband the Valley City Police Department and outsource law enforcement responsibility to the Barnes County Sheriff's Department.

Richter said petition sponsors Bob Drake, Tony Drake and Lloyd Nelson must collect at least 465 signatures to present the initiated ordinance to the city commission to set up a citywide vote.
