Public Safety Funds for Sheriff's Office

Tonight, the Mason County Board of Commissioners will decide if they want to grant public safety funds to the sheriff's office.

 Just over $51,000 is needed to provide half of the means to employ a road patrol officer. The other half comes from local tax dollars. According to the Mason County Press, Sheriff Cole says, "the deputy's primary purpose is to patrol non-primary roads." The board will also vote on a Homeland Security grant that would pay for 38 new gas masks for the Sheriff's Office in addition to Ludington and Scottville Police Departments.
