The Afton Town Council has decided to keep its police department in place.
The decision was made during the regular meeting of the town council on Tuesday, April 15. Details of the council’s decision will be included in the next edition of the Star Valley Independent.
The Afton Town Council initially began discussions as to the future of the police department in a workshop last month. The discussion had centered on the concept of “what was best for Afton” in regards to their own police force or to partner with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
