CANYON CITY — Sheriff Todd McKinley made his pitch for more funding at a work session of the Grant County Court on Wednesday, Feb. 15, arguing that he needs more deputies to properly patrol the county’s 4,500 square miles and that he needs to raise salaries significantly to be able to recruit and retain sworn officers.

Right now, the sheriff said, he has eight people available for patrol duty — a list that includes himself and Undersheriff Zach Mobley.
