Tiffin plans to reduce the number of hours it contracts with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, county officials said on Wednesday.

Like all small communities in Johnson County, Tiffin contracts with county law enforcement and pays for the service.

Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek expressed his concern over Tiffin's plan to cut hours at a county Board of Supervisor's work session on Wednesday.

The majority of supervisors expressed similar concerns about the hours reduction, especially as the town of Tiffin continues to grow.

The supervisors plan to set up a meeting with the Tiffin City Council in the next few months "to share our concerns about their limited amount of investment," Supervisor Terrence Neuzil said.

"We want to make sure Tiffin recognizes that we are concerned," he said.
