New sheriff’s deputy to be sworn in Tuesday

April 24, 2017

MONTROSE — The Lee County Sheriff’s Department will be getting a new deputy sheriff when the Lee County Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday morning.

According to Lee County Sheriff Stacy Weber, former Donnellson Police Chief Thomas Oberman will take the oath of office. Weber said among other things Oberman will help alleviate the overtime being paid to deputies in his department.

Due to Oberman’s resignation, Donnellson is still without a police chief, but is in the process of trying to establish a 28E agreement with West Point to share Brad Roberts, West Point’s chief.

The Board will also discuss the possible need of another hiring in the Sheriff Department due to a current vacancy.

The Board will discuss and consider approving a resolution to amend the SEIL Mental Health and Disability Services 28E agreement with the county.

The Board of Supervisors meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Lee County Sheriff’s Office conference room.
