Committee reviews budget for Warren County Jail maintainence
Placeholder Image
It appears the next Warren County sheriff will have to police himself, at least as far as jail maintenance goes. The county Building and Grounds Committee met Tuesday to review the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year’s custodial expense, as well as a lease agreement with Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation for its Groundwater Protection office located within the Warren County Administrative building. Chairman Carl E. Bouldin informed the committee the county plans to provide the Sheriff’s Department with $50,000 so it can handle its own building maintenance issues and alleviate the demand on the county’s only maintenance person, Greg Bowdoin.
