Despite concerns raised by its district and county court employees, Cuming County’s Board of Supervisors voted 6-1 Tuesday morning to continue exploring ways to trim costs, possibly by combining the county and district court offices and eliminating one employee.
Doing so, however, would need the approval of the State Court Administrator. The vote Tuesday means the county will send a letter to that state office, seeking any assistance it can give on the matter.
The result, as discussed at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisor meeting, may be that the county no longer has a deputy Clerk of the District Court after the end of this budget year, or soon thereafter.
