Questions Over Surplus Property Too Broad?

Smith County Commissioners have requested the State Attorney General's opinion on some questions regarding the Sheriffs Department. But some confusion over just what those questions should be has created some controversy.

The request must go through the District Attorney's office but before sending those questions to the Attorney General, the DA's office made a few changes. It's those changes that have caused concern within the court.

Acting District Attorney Matt Bingham says his office is just trying to get more specific answers. Commissioners are expected to discuss the issue with the District Attorneys office during Monday's meeting.
