Washington County Board Approves Budget and Another School Resource Officer

BLAIR – Washington County’s budget did gain approval at yesterday’s board of supervisor’s meeting according to chair Steve Detlefs.  That budget of $14.7 million approved on a seven to zero vote.  An emergency item was placed on the agenda after Fort Calhoun and Arlington School boards earlier this week approved funding for full time school resource officers. The two districts currently share one.  Approval was given to begin the process of hiring a second resource officer.
