The Shasta County Board of Supervisors agreed to fund five additional deputies following Sheriff Tom Bosenko's plea for more staffing.
The board unanimously approved funding five positions with $910,000 Tuesday morning.
The funds are expected to allow the hiring of five deputies, two administrative staffers and re-open the Burney sub-station, which was closed due to budget cuts in 2010.
Action News Now Reporter Angela Mussallam will have a full report on the board's decision tonight at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
