The Pulaski County Council discussed several additional appropriation and transfer requests on Monday night. A couple of requests from the Pulaski County Justice Center were discussed at length.
Sheriff Michael Gayer spoke at the Eastern Pulaski School Board meeting so Matron Carrie Aaron and Sergeant Fred Rogers represented the sheriff’s department where they explained an $80,000 additional appropriation. Sergeant Rogers said the money is needed to pay past bills that have been due – some for many years.

In a previous meeting, the school board members discussed this because a change in Indiana law allowed concealed weapons with a permit to be in locked cars on school property. The change allowed school boards to consider whether weapons should be allowed within the schools. The policy wouldn’t apply to students, just a designated group of faculty members who have gone through proper training.
