HENRY COMMISSIONERS DISCUSS LEGAL EXPENSES

Some concerns regarding paperwork may be holding-up reimbursement to Henry County when it comes to costs for defendants in court that cannot afford their own attorneys.  Henry County Commissioners discussed that issue with three local judges.   In some cases, Henry County is not receiving any reimbursement due to forms not being turned-in properly, or not filled-out at all.   Henry County is supposed to receive 42% of the expense for legal counsel for indigents. 

Henry County Commissioners approved the change to move the Child Support Enforcement Agency under Job and Family Services.  With that move, JFS Director Shannon Jones was approved for a salary increase.

                   And a company from Toledo, DMD Environmental was approved for the contract to check for asbestos at Countryview Haven.  The cost is $900.
