The Davison County Commission will meet with Sheriff Steve Brink Tuesday, one week after announcing his office violated the state's bid policy.

The five-person board will meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Davison County North Office at 1420 N. Main St.

Earlier this year, the Davison County Sheriff's office violated state bid laws when it purchased a $26,000 Dodge Charger without first receiving approval from the commission. The new vehicle was included in the 2016 budget, but the bid needed to be approved by the commission.

Brink is schedule to meet with the commission at 10:15 a.m. to offer an explanation regarding the violation.
