Jail overcrowding ordinance passes on split vote


May 3, 2013 —

       Greenhill also stated that the ordinance does not require Boggs to specifically relocate only federal inmates and that he still has discretion as to how he would implement a plan to bring the population in compliance with the ordinance.

       “No one has ever said that the jailer has to get rid of all of the federal inmates,” Greenhill added.

        The ordinance passed on a 3-2 vote with Magistrates Clifford Roe, Clarence Fankell and Mary Ellen Greenhill casting affirmative votes, while Brandon Burton and Brad Brammell voted against the measure.

       The ordinance will officially be enacted upon publication in the newspaper of record for Carter County -- the Journal-Times.
