Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young didn't get the $500,000 he asked for during a county commission workshop last week, but commissioners voted Tuesday night during a regular meeting to give him $200,000. The money will be used to help the sheriff meet some of the operating costs at the jail that he says have caused his law enforcement budget to fall short.
"I've talked to the sheriff and he's fine with this. This is what we're doing and what we can afford it. He knows the fiscal constraints this county is under," said Commission Chairman Eugene Lamb.
