NLLLtwAjV, Court Clerk Ifswity ALLEN LeMIEUX Phone 225 -3322 County Attorney Jefferson County BOULDER,, MONTANA 5"n October 25, 1973 Jefferson County Board of Commissioners Courthouse Boulder, Mortana Re: County Attorney Emergency Budget Gentlemen: For reasons which are already clear to you it will be necessary to appropriate an emergency budget for the county attorneys office for the remainder of this fiscal year. I don't know if I will be able to hire an attorney to work on this basis but I expect that from now on it will be necessary for Jefferson County to employ a Deputy County Attorney unless there is a real change in the work load carried by this office. An additional factor which you should consider is the increased responsibilities in.the civil field relating to governmental agencies, both state and county, as a result of the new consti- tution and the large number of laws giving effect to it. Accordingly, you are advised that an emergency exists in the county attorneys office by reason of the increased criminal cases presently docketed and others whith aide pLsM iftg, ff _ ition to the increased civil work now required. Accordingly, you are requested to budget, on an emergency basis for this fiscal year, the sum of $4,848.00 which would be the statutory pay due a deputy county attorney for the remaining eight months of this fiscal year. Sincerely yours, ALM /s ieux- RESOLUTION FOR EMERGENCY EXPENDITURE WHEREAS, the District Judge of the Fifth Judicial District of the State of Montana, in and for the County of Jefferson, has made an order requiring the undersigned Board of Jefferson County Commissioners to establish an emergency budget in the amount of $. ='000.00 on the grounds and for the reasons that the district court budget is presently without funds to employ defense attorneys for the defense of indigents as required by the Montana and United States constitutions; AND, the Jefferson County Attorney has filed his Declaration of Emergency Budget Requirement with the said Board of County Commissioners stating that the extremely large criminal case load in Jefferson County, coupled with requirements of state and county subdivisions relating to the new constitution and statutes implement- ing said constitution require that he hire a deputy in order to meet the legal requirements of Jefferson County, and that an emergency b - pdget is required in the amount of $3848.00; IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED and agreed by the undersigned, being the members of the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners, by unanimous vote, that said emergency budgets are required by the emergencies as set forth in the order of the District Judge and the emergency budget statement of the Jefferson County Attorney which require an immediate emergency expenditure of public funds, the amount to be budgeted for the district court for the remainder of this fiscal year being $3,000.00 and the amount to be budget for the needs of the Jefferson County Attorneys office in the amount of $3,848.00.
