This Memorial Day weekend Marion County Sheriff Ron Goemaat urges residents to be very cautious and responsible.  Goemaat says he wants everyone to have a good time but realize that during holiday weekends there are often many alcohol related incidents on the roads and waterways and wants everyone to be safe.  He reminds residents that if you are planning to drink this weekend it is important to either stay put or have a designated driver.  In addition, Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Bigaouette adds that there will be additional law enforcement out this weekend patrolling the roads and encourages people to call the sheriff’s office or 911 if they see what seems like an impaired driver on the road.
