County Considers New Conservatorship Agency

A proposal to create a new agency to oversee conservatorships in Davidson County is gaining support among officials in spite of budget concerns, The Tennessean reports. Metro Council member Walter Hunt, who served on a task force that recommended creation of a new agency, said he will be actively seeking support from council members in the coming months. The task force convened by Probate Judge David “Randy” Kennedy concluded that there were too few resources available for a growing caseload that includes many indigent wards.
