(SNOVER) -- The Sanilac County Board of Commissioners held their regular meeting Tuesday night at the Moore Township Hall in Snover, giving residents in district two the opportunity to attend a meeting closer to home. Commissioners and residents heard from Kyle McCarthy of the Sanilac Conservation District. McCarthy spoke about the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP), a voluntary program designed to verify that a farmer is implementing environmentally safe practices. McCarthy also talked about the Michigan Right to Farm Act, and addressed concerns from residents about a 3,500 cattle farm coming to the area.
In other business, board members unanimously authorized the Sanilac County Sheriff Department to purchase 27 .40 caliber pistols at a cost not to exceed $18,270. Sheriff Garry Biniecki explained that the purchase will standardize the weapons that officers carry.
The meeting at Moore Township Hall was part of an effort by commissioners to hold a meeting in each district. Commissioners will meet at the Lexington Village Hall on Tuesday, July 23rd at 7:00 pm.
