Unicoi County Budget Compromises
After some decisions last night from the Finance Committee, Unicoi County deputies in the county will receive a little extra money in their paycheck. Sheriff Mike Hensley spoke to commissioners about losing good officers to larger departments, like Johnson City’s, for higher pay. Commissioners recommended giving a portion of a raise to the officers and promise to try to make up the difference in next year’s budget unless a crisis comes up. They also agreed, with approval from jail inspectors, to hiring six new part time employees for the jail. Sheriff Hensley says he’s committed to helping the county save money and recommended some moves that could help make that happen including bringing in some federal dollars by opening a federal cell.
