The Adams County Council, at its meeting this week, unanimously approved the 2012-13 budget of Adams County's Community Corrections (CC), since all the money comes from the state.
The budget of $448,135 is the same at the 2010-11 budget, with the largest single amount ($118,300) for leasing electronic ankle bracelets worn by people on home detention.
A new amount in the coming year, as funds were shifted around, allows $523 to be spent for interpreters.
Meanwhile, Ian Gilbert, the county's CC director, informed the council that his agency has 22 adults and eight juveniles doing local community service work.
Among the projects was scraping the walls of the the old railroad depot at the center of Decatur.
Gilbert also said that, in the spring, he will seek approval of the council to buy a small trailer on which full bags of roadside trash can be hauled when community service workers do that task.
