It sounds like things got a little heated between Sheriff Castle and the County Commissioners at yesterday's safety budget hearing.
I've heard Sheriff Castle talk about his budget problems. And like everybody else, he's struggling. One thing I did not know until I heard his presentation was that public officials are held personally liable if they exceed their budgets. I would be very concerned if I were in his shoes right now.
So what happened?
I spoke to a very reliable source who attended the meeting and he indicated that Commissioner Beltrone walked out on the sheriff.
Great. Just what we need. That kind of childish, unprofessional behavior is NOT going to help solve the problem. Grow up.
