New special operations equipment home for Marquette County Sheriff's office

NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette County Sheriff's office announced Friday they have a new place to store their special operations equipment.

The building is located next to the Marquette County Health Department.

Previously, the sheriff's office used the Michigan State Police garage to house their materials.

But the Marquette Board of Commissioners opted to build a garage for the office’s needs.

"It's a great day for us for special operations. We have a lot of very expensive equipment that needs to be heeded so that when they need it they can get out and go right away. It's centrally located, right next to the Health Department and the Michigan State Police Post, so whatever direction they need to go they can get there,” said Marquette County Sheriff Greg Zyburt.

The sheriff's office thanks the builders for their timeliness and effort.
