JENISON, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Ottawa County Board of Commissioners voted 9-2 Tuesday to re-install a religious sign at Hager Park. There will also be a disclaimer attached saying the county does not necessarily endorse the sign.
Opening prayer set the stage for the commissioners' meeting, which included a passionate debate about religion and politics in Ottawa County after the sign was removed when some complained it violated the separation of church and state.
The meeting saw a new call for action, with some speakers asking the county board to return the sign. A pastor and a representative of Congressman Bill Huizenga were among those supporters.
Others voiced agreement with the sign's removal, arguing the sign endorsed a particular religion.
