Anderson Clerk Proposes New Court Fee

Anderson County Circuit Clerk Tyler Mayes has proposed a new fee to be tacked onto court costs in criminal cases as a way to supplement funding for school security measures. As a former teacher, Mayes says the idea was always on his mind, but the recent massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary pushed him to pursue the concept. In a news release this week Mayes said, “This is a fee that I will passionately fight for.” Knox News has more.
