Marshall County makes veterans service officer full time

Marshall County now has a full-time veterans services officer. The county council approved the recommendation of the commissioners to make Pam Schweizer-Betz a full-time employee with benefits. The benefit package will cost well over $10,000, including health, life and dental insurance, long-term disability and retirement. Council President Matt Hassell noted that demand has been up for the past year, and hours have been increased to reflect it. He expects that demand to continue with two recent wars.
