Local judge is threatening to possibly arrest some Adair county commissioners.
It’s a testy dispute between Judge Russell Steele and the commissioners…over paying bills. The county has refused to pay some expenses at the juvenile justice center and refused to pay for some work done at the clerk of court’s office. Judge Steele says pay-up by Tuesday or else…he could order commissioners locked-up. Commissioners appealed to a higher court…but the Western District of the Missouri Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the judge.
So, now…the question is…will commissioners approve those bills to be paid or face the wrath of the judge.
