Woodbury County, Iowa officials have agreed to seek the Iowa attorney general's opinion to determine whether the county sheriff has the autonomy to set his own policy governing off-duty work.

Sheriff Dave Drew and County Board Chairman Larry Clausen agreed Friday to seek the opinion. Drew believes he has the authority to allow sheriff's deputies to wear their uniforms and drive county cars while moonlighting as hired security personnel at community events.

Clausen says uniforms and cars belong to the county and should not be used for personal gain.
