Sheriff’s Report: Cole Fired Up About Budget Meeting In Pine County (Audio)
One of the most anticipated parts of our weekly program schedule is the Thursday morning appearance of Pine County Sheriff Robin Cole. Heard at 7:30am on Cool Country 100.9, each week Cole informs Pine County on the activities of his office and the deputies it employs.
This week’s report featured an update on the recent budget meeting Cole had with the Pine County Commissioners, where Cole said some on the board think he’s providing “too much public safety.” Cole added that 2 of the Commissioners believe that he is providing “too many Deputies” in the county.
Cole said in his career he’d never heard of such a thing, and wants the people of Pine County to know that he’s “still five percent under budget” and is “providing more deputies out then have ever been provided for the same amount of money.”
Cole also said one of the Commissioners commented that the pubic thinks there are too many squad cars seen around now. Cole disagreed.
