Angry County Commission Comments in Carter County
There were several angry exchanges during a Monday Carter County Commission meeting in Elizabethton. The controversy over the jail operation by the Sheriff's Department was again in the spotlight. Sheriff Chris Mathes told commissioners a new record in jail population was reached at 296 over the weekend. The Sheriff said even the new jail facility which houses 307 inmates it would have been crowded. It's hope to be opened in the next couple of weeks following years of court action and delays. Many Carter County Commissioners are extremely critical over the cost of law enforcement and operating a corrections facility. Mathes says that even in the new jail facility prisoners may have to wind up sleeping on the floor because of uneven distribution of male and female populations at different times. Much of the present temporary County lockup space will be disassembled and sold once the $26 million new facility is opened.(CS)
