DISTRICT ATTORNEY GENERAL RUSSELL JOHNSON
DRUG COURT ROLLS OUT

Officials are still waiting to hear about the outcome of Roane County’s federal grant application that would provide funding for a drug court.

The county applied for the $350,000 grant in April.

“We will not know about the federal grant until late September,” District Attorney General Russell Johnson said Thursday.

That hasn’t prevented the county from moving forward with the program, however.

Earlier this month, the Roane County Commission voted to accept a $50,000 annual drug court grant from the state.
