Splitting The Difference

The Marshall County Board of Supervisors met for its final 2017 meeting Wednesday morning. Among the items was discussion of sharing the cost of new extrication equipment, also known as Jaws of Life with the city of Marshalltown and State Center. As State Center is currently raising funds for its own Jaws of Life, the Supervisors split the funding, allocating five thousand dollars for State Center, with ten thousand dollars to go towards a new Jaws of Life to be shared with the Marshalltown Fire Department.
