Marion County Commission discusses drug concerns


The Marion County commission meeting took place Wednesday, with one of the growing issues on the minds of locals is the increase of drug trafficking on local roads.

Concerned residents said it’s an issue that makes them feel unsafe in their own homes.

“This problem was in Baxter. We have already been contacted by them already. It’s a continuing ongoing investigation as always, but it is good to see the community coming forward and  participating with law enforcement and elected officials..Trying to get their problems resolved.” said Commissioner Ernie Vangilder.

Commissioners said they will be looking into further actions to decrease drug trafficking and are continuing to work with law enforcement to enhance awareness and public safety.
