County getting more ankle bracelets
Hamilton County Commissioners approved the spending of $350,000 to lease 200 more ankle bracelets so more people can be put on house arrest. (Read the story).
The move came after the county ran out of the devices last month and asked for more. Sheriff Simon Leis supports getting the devices, but shook his head at the county spending money when it says it's broke. (the county says the money is coming from a fund that doesn't impact the general fund budget). The courts are picking up half the tab. The issue passed unanimously. Commissioner David Pepper sent out a news release supporting the proposal.
