About 80 people attended the Marshall County Commission meeting Wednesday for the commission’s public hearing on a car tag fee to fund school resource officers in the county school system.

The sheriff’s office and county schools want to use the funds to provide one full-time officer for each of the county system’s 14 schools.

The commission took no action following the hearing and hasn’t announced when or if it might.

According to Commission Chairman James Hutcheson, the school system currently has eight part-time school resource officers. The commission is gathering information on raising the fees for car tags for those who live in the county school district.
