Benjamin Pritchard led mission to capture Confederate President

There is a swimming advisory at West Side County Park in Allegan today where the Allegan County Health Department found high levels of E. Coli at the beach.

The extra money will come from a surplus in one of the county's insurance funds. The project to convert a former factory in Allegan into a new jail and sheriff's office got underway in early 2012.

Officials say hiring could begin in stages by end of the year.
