Jail Issue Sheriff Rich Green was grilled by the Commissioners about bringing expenses into line with first quarter rev- enues for his department. The expenses for the first quarter were $68,000 greater than actual rev- enues and the county made up the shortage by taking Payment in Lieu Taxes Funds to pay bills. The 2012 Budget was built on having an average of fifteen State of Idaho prisoners in our prison during the first quar- ter. The census of state prisoners has dropped as low as six prisoners and there are now only eight prisoners at the jail. The State of Idaho wants Adams County to assume the medical expenses for prisoners housed in the Adams County jail. Jailer Steve Ogden estimates that could add between 840,000 and $59,000 to the 2012 expenses. Clerk Sherry Ward stated said that we must have the minimum numbers of state prisoners to maintain current Sheriff Department staffing so it: is important to get the amount .of money avail- able to provide medical care to the prisoners. The CommissiOners scheduled further discussion on the Sheriff Department bud- get for next week's meet- ing. In other items dis- cussed at the meeting the Commissioners approved the Assessors office to convert real estate tax information so it would be available to title com- panies on-line. The ser- vice could generate fees from the title companies in the county. The hir- ing freeze implemented by the Commissioners last month may need to be suspended so the Assessor's Office can fill a part-time position in the vehicle registration area.

Rich Laine had been appointed to the council for a partial term less than a year ago, and Dan Huter has served on the council for some time, so neither could be said to be brand new members.

If any of the parties involved are dissatisfied with the arrangement, it can be canceled with a 60-day notice.

"New', city council members, Dan Huter and Rich Laine being sworn in by city clerk, Tami Testa. placed into watching over the civil rights of the citi- zens that live here. And it's been very encourag- ing to me regarding my future plans, so with that said, I would like to announce that I am going to retire. I'm not sure what the date is, but I figured I will do the best I can for the sheriff in my remaining time with him, and whoever God chooses for the next sher- iff will have to make that decision as well." Green followed up, say- ing, "You know it's dif- ficult when you've been in a position for as long as I have to make a final decision like this. I feel like I've given all I can and done the best I could to serve God and the people here in Adams County and I think He's indicated to me that it's time to let someone else have that. And of course this announcement opens up the field wide open; anybody could be elected sheriff of Adams County this election. And I've heard that there are already people who are considering running. I wanted to say that it is also important for me to consider who that person might be---who would take over as sheriff. I gave that a lot of thought and I also know that whoever it might be they are going to need a lot of help. This is a complex mission to have. Politics aside there are a lot of aspects of the office of sheriff that I can help bring a lot of experi- ence to, and that's my plan, to help the person that I endorse, and that is Ryan Zollman." Officer Zollman said that Green had asked him about three weeks ago to consider running for sheriff, and that after considering it, Zollman decided he would run. Zollman said, "I can't say enough for those two gentlemen [Green and Borger] who have put together a wonder- fill department. There are a lot of really good people working here. If I am chosen to take over, a lot of that hard work has already done. They've laid a great foundation in placing the people that are already here in the jobs that they're in.
