Grand Island sheriff calls for court paperwork change
Its well over a month before the state legislature convenes but the Hall County Sheriff wants to get a jump on enacting a major change in state law.
Sheriff Jerry Watson wants a change in the way sheriff's departments serve civil court paperwork.
Right now, all taxpayers pay for the work deputies do in serving writs and other court documents.
But Watson told the Grand Island Independent that those who file the court actions should bear the full expense.
He estimates the cost of serving civil documents runs about $100,000 a year.
Watson has sent letters to both the governor and the legislature asking for the change.
