Marshall County Looking At Tag Fee to Pay for School Officers
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The superintendent of Marshall County Schools, is asking the county commission to look into the idea of adding a few to car tag renewals to pay for school resource officers. Tim Nabors asked the commission last week.
Nabors says the school system is already running on a bare bones budget. The $25 fee would raise more than a million dollars a year. Nabors says officers cost about $50,000 per year. There are 16 schools in the county system.
The commission says they want public input into the idea before making a decision.
