Maggie awarded funds for law enforcement

The Town of Maggie Valley was awarded a $184,786 federal grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

The funding, which will be distributed during a three-year period, is the reimbursement to the town for the full salary and benefits of an officer already on the force.

During hard economic times­­­­ and budget cuts, Chief Sutton with the support of Captain Moody, felt the urgency to compensate the people served in Maggie Valley by continuing to apply for this funding since May of 2010.
