Tag Fee

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)–  Monday morning the Marshall County Commission voted to table a proposed tag fee increase indefinitely.  However, commissioners said they would find a way to fund school resource officers another way.

Marshall County Superintendent Tim Nabors had wanted an increase in tag fees of $25 to fund a school resource officer for every school in the county system.   The plan was met with a lot of opposition from residents.

Under Alabama law the county does have the authority to impose a fee, but commissioners decided against the idea.   Instead they say they will find the money elsewhere to fund the officers.   The commission hopes to come up with a plan within the next few weeks.
