County Commission to meet tonight, SROs on agenda
The Williamson County Commission will meet tonight at 7 p.m. for their regularly scheduled meeting at the County Administrative Complex.
Top items on the agenda include resolutions pertaining to the funding of contract services for students with needs that the district cannot provide, the organization of School Resource Officers under the sheriff’s office supervision and a disaster response fund for the county.
Due to circumstances beyond the scope of services that the WCS district can provide, the board is asking for $255,500 to fund outside contract services for students who need additional aid such as treatment for suicide ideation or allowances for students who are bed-ridden, Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney gave as examples recently.
Also, in order to make the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office the governing body of the 32 Student Resource Officers for Franklin Special School District and Williamson County Schools, an agreement between the districts and the county is up for approval. A $2.5 million resolution was approved in January by the full commission for the funding of the officers.
In the case of a disaster in Williamson County, the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee proposes to oversee a disaster response fund for the county at no cost. The resolution is also up for approval.
