There's growing opposition to a proposal for a helicopter unit for Montgomery County police. Council President Phil Andrews is citing budget issues as the main reason he and council are against a grant application to the federal government that would cover only a portion of the cost for two police helicopters.

The idea is being supported by County Executive Ike Leggett and the police department. Andrews sent a letter to Leggett asking for a clearer rundown of the costs for the helicopters, where the money to maintain them will come from and if there are personnel assigned to the project.
