Budget committee meeting

The Union County Budget Committee considered several items on January 29, 2024. The recent snow.caused the regular meeting to be rescheduled and held prior to the Union County Commission Meeting. The committee approved the purchase of ankle monitors for work release inmates to comply with a new state law at a cost of approximately $10,000. The committee took no action on the sheriff's proposal to spend $97,000 for a new camera system. Discussion centered around the cost and the fact that the request was not in the current budget nor did the sheriff have surplus money to fund the system.
