COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Boone County authorities have requested more money to deal with the expenses of processing an increasing number of requests for concealed carry permits.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1j7nSzs ) applications for new concealed-carry weapon permits in Boone County are on pace to top previous highs.

So far in 2015, there have been 1,063 applications for concealed-weapon permit renewals in Boone County, surpassing the previous high of 1,035 applications processed in 2014. New concealed-weapon permit applications already total 821, a pace that could exceed the previous high of 1,017 in 2013.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department on Monday sought a budget amendment to add $108,000 to the revolving fund the department uses to account for additional revenue and expenses related to administering the concealed carry permit applications.
