Berrien County Commissioners say they plan no further action on a lead abatement program. 

Some Benton Harbor City Commissioners have raised questions about whether the county had followed federal grant requirements in the program designed to reduce the risk of lead exposure to children. But the Saint Joseph-Benton Harbor Herald-Palladium reports that Berrien County Commissioners say they're satisfied with the health department's due diligence in administering the grant.
