A proposal to provide county-run probation services was put on a form of probation itself Monday when Carter County commissioners decided to step back and gather more information.
“We need data,” said Commissioner Richard Winters, chairman of the Carter County Law Enforcement Committee.
The committee returned Monday night to the idea of offering probation services currently handled by Crossroads.
“I think that our primary interest in it is that taxpayer money be utilized in the most efficient manner,” Winters said.
Details about how much money would be generated as well as how much the initial start up would cost are still indeterminable, Winters said.
“That’s still being figured out,” Winters said. “We don’t know for sure. We need certain information to calculate that.”
