    The St. James City Council approved a budget amendment to fund one School Resource Officer (SRO) to assist the St. James School District. For the past several months, the SRO position has been discussed after being eliminated in this year’s budget due to projected lower sales tax dollars due to COVID-19, but the city approved making the amendment believing it is good for both the city and students.
