|By emporiagazette.com- Linzi Garcia|
The Lyon County Commission met Thursday morning to return to last week’s approval of two Community Corrections budgets and one grant submission.
Last week, the commission approved the adult and juvenile Kansas Department of Corrections reimbursement budgets for fiscal year 2020. It also approved the submission of the 2020 Federal Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant for $43,600 upon approval. The grant money will go toward drug testing, translation services and transportation for those utilizing court services.
“Last week I was here asking you to approve this carryover reimbursement budget, and I’m asking you now that our Community Corrections Advisory Board has approved it (on Tuesday),” in order to follow the “proper succession process,” Lyon County Community Corrections Director Steve Willis said.
