The Marshall County Commissioners approved the hire of an independent contractor to fill in as director of court services while the current director takes a leave of absence.
Ron Babcock will be covering the Marshall County Community Corrections Department from March 13 through April 13. This is a 24-hour and 7-day-a-week position. The contract approved was for $2,100 to be paid to the contractor. The contract could be extended if more time needs to be filled.
Superior Court 2 Judge Dean Colvin made the request for the help. He also mentioned that the Community Corrections program is working well in the county and more and more offenders are being accepted into the program. Judge Colvin noted that a permanent part-time person may be needed in the future to help with the abundance of people in the program.
