Madison County Commissioners are expected to vote on a budget amendment that would increase its attorney budget to $90,000 to pay for its lawsuit with Madison County Sheriff John Mehr, the Jackson Sun reports. Mehr sued the county in July for a lack of funding after the commission approved a $22.2 million budget for his office, while he wanted $25 million to pay for salary increases and to cover rising costs at the jail. The vote will take place at the commission's Aug.19 meeting.
