(Taylorsville-AP) -- The town of Taylorsville is hoping for better deal when it comes to police protection.
The city doesn't have its own police department, so it contracts with the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office. The County Council has decided to charge more for the deputies' service. Taylorsville city leaders say the 31-percent increase is too much.
Sheriff Aaron Kennard told the City Council that county leaders may be willing to negotiate.
Seventy-eight percent of Taylorsville's 58-thousand residents think county sheriff services are excellent or good, according to a December survey.
