Life rings, 911 call boxes under consideration in St. Joseph

The summer heat means more people will be hitting the beach, and a proposal to put life rings on the south pier in St. Joseph at Silver Beach County Park is moving forward.

According to our reporting partners at WSJM Radio, the Berrien County board of commissioners will take up the issue at a June 13 meeting.

County officials say the rings were taken off the pier in the mid 1990's because of liability issues and theft.

Four of the county commissioners want those put back and 911 call boxes installed.
