QUILIN, Mo. - Usually we report about city leaders and elected officials disagreeing on one thing or another.  Here's a twist.  On Thursday, a meeting between Qulin Mayor Kathy Owens and Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs proved otherwise.

Both sides agree it boils down to a lack of communication.  Several people in town complained about poor response time from the sheriff's department on emergency calls.  Qulin only has one police officer and he can't be on duty 24/7. 

Sheriff Dobbs says he wasn't aware of the situation and told Mayor Owens he'd look into resolving the problems.
