NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Adams County will have to fund a position at the Adams County Youth Court in the coming fiscal year that it has never had to fund before.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1KOzAcf) Adams County Youth Court Judge Walt Brown told the county board of supervisors Monday the state legislature has mandated all youth courts have an intake officer.

Adams County already had an intake officer, but that position has been paid for by the state through an Adolescent Opportunity Program grant.

Brown said the cost increase to the county will come to approximately $32,500 plus benefits.

County Administrator Joe Murray said the amount will not show up as a budget increase since it was previously budgeted through a different revenue source.
