Pulaski County Prosecutor Daniel Murphy approached the county council this week to ask the council members to accept his full-time employment and wages as he begins his four-year term in the office. That request was unanimously approved.
Crystal Sanders was appointed as deputy prosecutor.
He also asked for a transfer of $6,000 to satisfy the installation of money to the pre-trial diversion line item in the budget. The prosecutor requested that the money be moved from the pre-trial diversion user fees.
Prosecutor Murphy told the council that the pre-trial diversion fund line item had a balance of $2,413.52 in the 2014 budget. He asked to move that total to the equipment line item within the 2015 budget.
The council approved both requests and the appropriations will be advertised.
