Dispatcher proposal to be considered

With county money tight as indicated in recent Quorum Court meetings, a proposal for dispatcher services made by the City of Corning to the Clay County Sheriff’s Department has the potential to generate a little income. The idea of having county law enforcement take over the dispatcher responsibilities for the City of Corning has been discussed in various conversations in the past year.

On February 25 almost a week after the regular monthly Quorum Court meeting in Corning, Judge Mike Patterson called a county finance meeting to order in the main court room of the Piggott Court house. Justices Cagle, Henderson, Blanchard and Culver, elected officials and a few employees were present. The QC finance meeting minutes stated the meeting was called due to an error in budgeting the housing for female prisoners in the Greene County Jail. The purpose of the meeting was to try to find funds available within the sheriff’s budgets. JP’s looked into the automation funds and the Sheriff and Jail Budgets to see the best way to utilize the funds to assist general budgets. It was brought up during the meeting that it would benefit the County General budgets by using automation budgets first, when paying bills, as the automation budgets are exhausted; then use County General Budgets only. After much searching and moving monies around, the funds were found to pay for housing the female prisoners in Greene County.
