City to hire police
YATES CENTER Two full-time police officers soon could join the Yates Center police force. City council members agreed May 7 to hire two officers to assist Police Chief Doug Smoot, after an officer who worked with him resigned, according to The Yates Center News. The city also has received numerous complaints about grass being too tall on some properties but said Smoot didnt have time to address the problems because he was shorthanded. The decision to hire officers immediately followed that discussion.
