People of La Grange in Lenoir County came out Monday night to hear the fate of their boys in blue. A proposal to cut the police force has many people worried.
Town manager John Craft presented a proposal enlisting the services of the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office. He says having only two deputies to police La Grange would be more cost efficient. Craft says the town would save over $65,000 the first year and $150,000 after that.
But some residents say they're concerned and say you can't put a pricetag on safety.
A larger town hall meeting will take place next Monday night inside the Frank Alumni hall at 7:00 pm. People with comments and concerns will be able to speak.
