JENISON, Mich. -- Ottawa County commissioners Tuesday voted 9-2 to re-install a religious sign in Hager Park.

Two people had previously complained that the sign was a violation of the separation of church and state, and it was removed in December 2014.

Commissioners met in closed session and announced they had voted to return the sign.

The sign, which features Psalm 19:1, reads, "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth his handiwork."

The people opposing the sign have threatened to sue if it doesn't stay down.
