Lyon County Sheriff's Department and the Emporia Police Department may combine into one law enforcement center.
According to our radio partner KVOE in Emporia, a consulting firm is currently working on a second draft proposal.
The firm is researching costs and locations for the consolidation.
They are also looking at switching the Sheriff's Department benefit plans from KPERS to Kansas police and fire.
KVOE says that could hurt the chances of a consolidation because of a significant cost increase expected.
