The Moffat County Sheriff's Department will sell bricks at the Public Safety Center as a fund-raiser for its scholarship program and to purchase and upgrade exercise equipment for the new building.
The idea has the potential to raise nearly $17,000 $10,000 of which will be used for scholarships and $7,000 of which will be used for equipment.
The department has 528 bricks to sell, which be displayed under the flagpole in front of the Moffat County Public Safety Center.
People or businesses who purchase the bricks can print a memorial or business name on the brick.
Bricks cost $50 for two lines of print and $60 for three lines of print. The bricks are 4 inches by 8 inches by 2 1/2 inches.
"We anticipate people will do family names, memorials or business names," Sheriff's Department Sgt. Rick Holford said.
The entrance where the bricks will be placed is well lit and monitored by cameras, Detective K.C. Hume said, which lessens the chance of bricks being vandalized or damaged. In the event something does happen to a brick, the Sheriff's Department will establish a fund to replace any that are damaged.
The Sheriff's department has accepted the donation of used exercise equipment from other agencies, but most is missing the seats. Funds raised from selling bricks will be used to repair the equipment and purchase anything that was not donated.
Several bricks have already been sold.
"We have the order forms," Holford said. "Just bring use the money and we'll take it from there."
