Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett this week offered revised contract proposals to the cities that pay for his department’s important services. This is wise, as these same cities understandably rejected previous offers they considered exorbitant. Cashmere and Leavenworth even explored forming their own police department. Leavenworth launched a search for a police chief.

You can see why. Leavenworth’s 2013 contract for sheriff’s patrols was nearly 20 percent above what it paid in 2010, and Burnett’s initial offer for 2014 was 10 percent more than that. Burnett’s new offer is closer to a 3-percent hike.
