“I think it is important to move forward on what the voters clearly want which is county-wide voting,” Yeager said.

Probation services

The county will take over probation services this week, exercising a 15-day termination clause for cause included in its contract with Florida Probation Services.

The board narrowly approved moving probation services in-house – despite being provided with no formal plan on the transition, budget impact, etc. – at its last meeting.

Novak wrote Florida Probation Services regarding fulfilling the existing contract, which ran through October and Florida Probation Services – which deputy administrator Michael Hammond had labeled “nearly a scam” – replied it would exercise a 60-day out clause and be done by Aug 10.

The board approved Novak’s suggestion to exercise the 15-day termination clause.
