Last week the Johnson County Attorney's Office and County Commissioners exchanged letters between themselves concerning the grant application for OJJPD grant for the county's Diversion and Juvenile Probation programs.

The commissioners had told their assistant Jennifer Jones to not finish the application, due to what they thought was confidential information needed to complete it. The county attorney responded by saying the decision appeared to be in retaliation for his decisions on the County Assessor and the county's proposed fuel depot.

County Atorney Ken DeCock issued a response to the commissioner's letter Friday, saying he hopes the commissioners will econsider their decision and allow Jones to help finish the grant application.

The grant needs to be completed and submitted by September 17.
