Correspondence - BOCC (003)February 28, 2023 RE: FY24 CDS Funding Request for Technology GRANT COUNTY OFFICE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS P 0 Box 37 EPHRATA WA 98823 (509) 754-2011 It is my pleasure to write a letter in support of Grant County District Court's request for funding to move forward with a much-needed overhaul of the audio/visual technology systems in the courtrooms. The current system is outdated and is continuously needing to be "bandaged." With a new therapeutic court launching this spring,. having a reliable system in place will be key in servicing the participants' needs, especially if an individual is having to attend court virtually from a treatment facility. District Court currently does not offer virtual attendance other than thru the jail. There is little doubt that updating the technology in the courtrooms will further quality and efficiencies for court staff as well as the court participants and the public in general. I fully support the efforts of Grant County District Court as it seeks external funding to support this project. Sincerely, Robert Jones District 2 Commissioner "TO MEET CURRENT AND FUTURE NEEDSy SERVING TOGETHER WITH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ENTITIES? WHILE FOSTERING A RESPECTFUL AND SUCCESSFUL W❑RK ENVIRONMENT."
