Two local Police Departments in Montcalm County merged together this past weekend. The Howard City Police Department is now apart of the Montcalm County Sheriff's Department. The agreement between the two departments let the three full time Howard City police officers will become Sheriff Employees. The Village of Howard City will pay Montcalm County over $511,000 over the course of nearly three years. The contract will expire in 2016, at which time the village may either continue to contract for services or reestablish their own department.
