Sheriff Bobby McCallum addressed the Levy County Board of County Commissioners in a long discussion on July 2 in an attempt to secure additional funding for the fiscal year and left the meeting short of his goal.

McCallum sought additional funds to pay for full-time security on campuses during school hours, meeting a new state law requirement that came in the wake of the school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in February.
