Martin County commissioners have concerns about adding an assistant drug court coordinator to the payroll. As things stand, with the cost divided among three counties, Martin County would have to pony up $2,000. That is an extremely small amount of money, given the size of the county budget. But some commissioners worry about future costs, while others say they don't want to move ahead without buy-ins from the County Attorney and drug court steering committee. The County Attorney has expressed reservations about using drug court funds to pay for a salary. The drug court money from the state is intended to go to drug court expenses, not salaries.
