Probation Office Vote Delayed

(posted Mar 24)

The Administration and Finance Committee delayed its vote to approve a lease that would locate a traffic court, juvenile office, lock-up and probation office at 3733 Commercial Drive.

At its March 24 meeting, Committee Chair Marilyn Pfisterer said the delay was needed to give the court administrator and neighborhood associations time to work out their differences.

Residents and elected officials voiced opposition to a probation office moving to the site because of commercial strip's retail nature. A probation office is currently located at 3500 Lafayette Road, two blocks south of the proposed location.

The committee is expected to vote on the lease at its April 14 meeting.
