GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Commissioners in Ottawa County have given final approval to the reinstallation of a park sign that quotes the Bible.
The sign from the 1960s carries an excerpt from Psalm 19. It was removed in December from Hager Park in Georgetown Township after complaints that public property was being used to promote religion.
The Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists has threatened legal action.
The sign has the words, "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth his handiwork."
The county commissioners tentatively approved the restoration in January and gave it final approval Tuesday. The commission voted to place the sign in a new location within the park.
The sign was installed in 1967 in the 104-acre park, just west of Grand Rapids.
