I'm not going to tell the sheriff what to do with his budget. That's not a decision for me to make. These positions are secured between 7/1/97 and 6/30/98." Commissioner Ira "Red" Copass said later that "If we have to balance this budget, somebody is going to lose places. Let's face it, in this county, they (some small departments) can't operate. You're going to have to lose some people in the sheriff's department." "In the future we will have all calls dispatched from the same place and we can cut from there (the dispatcher's office). But I don't think we can guarantee the undersheriff anything," he said. "I heard through the grapevine that some people aren't going along with it (a proposed salary freeze in the sheriff's department)." "Some of the commissioners decided to take a pay cut back to 94/95 level. I did. Revert, Cam (McRae) and Davis did as well," he said, "but Carver didn't." "The commissioners aren't paid much," Copass said, "and most of them don't depend on it to live on. But if we can take a pay cut, others might have to."
