New Franklin Co. Budget Proposal Includes Funding to Juvenile Detention Center

Franklin Co. — A recent budget proposal is including funds that would keep the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center open for another year. According to a report from KFVS, Franklin County Treasurer John Gulley has released a proposed county budget for the 2016 fiscal year, including $1,876,077 of requested funding for the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center next year. The current proposal would cut nearly half a million dollars from the detention center’s budget from 2015 and would not fund the juvenile meth treatment program. A budget vote will likely be held on November 17th.
