County supervisors held off on approving a lease in Madison for a youth court/drug facility citing concerns over the upcoming fiscal year budget. The proposed location is at 214 Key Drive, Suite 1200.

Amy Nisbett presented the lease on behalf of Judge Staci O’Neal. Nisbett said the location was 500 square feet and would be a place for youth service counselors to meet individuals from south Madison County.

Nisbett said the rent would come from the Drug Court budget for September and October and out of the Youth Court budget next fiscal year.

District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen paused at the notion of approving a lease when budgets have not been approved.

“I hate to approve something when a total budget hasn’t been approved either,” he said.

Supervisors then decided not to approve the lease at the time until a budget for next fiscal year was finalized.
