Commissioners approve contracts for women’s jail diversion program

MOORE — Cleveland County Commissioners approved a contract between Sheriff Joe Lester and M. Rock Richardson LPC, PC for the women’s jail diversion and job placement program.

The contract had been tabled many weeks on the suggestion of Commissioner Rod Cleveland. Last week Cleveland said he wanted to clarify a few issues before he approved the contract.

Richardson will be paid $1,000 a month from Dec. 1, 2010, through September.

Commissioners also approved Jennifer Dell, MSW, and David Moxley, Ph.D., for services for the women’s program, the Second Act Project. Dell will receive $1,000 per month and Moxley will receive $1,500.

A contract with Jennifer Walker was tabled.

Candidates who wish to file for the Cleveland County Fair Board may do so 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jan. 31 through Feb. 4 at the county clerk’s office, second floor of the Cleveland County Office Building, 201 S. Jones Ave.

Fair board members serve a three-year term.
