Even police need permission to use guns sometimes, and they might not get it from Coloma Township.

Berrien County Police submitted a request back in 2010 to operate a police training gun range on Angling Road.

They need special permission because shooting there technically violates a township ordinance passed in 2008.

According to reporting partners at The Herald Palladium, the township planning commission finally took up the request, and voted to recommend rejecting it.

The long-standing dispute does not end here though.

The township sued the county over use of the range.

The case will go to court in September.
