COMMISSIONERS SPECIAL MEETING
The special meeting of the Hancock County Commissioners was brought to order by Commissioner Clark at 5:20 p.m. on Saturday January 30, 2021. Commissioner Wombacher, Commissioner Paradis, County Administrator Scott Adkins and Deputy County Administrator Rebekah Knowlton were also in attendance, as well as several members of the media. Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, the meeting was held remotely via Zoom.
Commissioner Paradis made the following statement:
“I see no reason to go into executive session to discuss our rights, duties and responsibilities regarding the current lack of recovery coaching in the Hancock County Jail.
I have recently spoken with the Sheriff, he was a perfect gentleman and welcomed our conversation. Sheriff Kane, Commission Chair Clark, and Healthy Acadia Executive Director Elsie Flemings have all committed to a meeting early next week on reestablishing Recovery Coaching in the Hancock County Jail as soon as possible – hopefully also early next week.
Sheriff Kane will be making a public statement at the beginning of Tuesday’s scheduled Commission meeting. I personally want to thank the Sheriff, Ms. Flemings and our chair Mr. Clark on their commitment to meet.”
Commissioner Clark and Commissioner Wombacher agreed there was no reason to enter executive session. They were also in agreement that this was a positive development for the jail and recovery coaching.
MOTION: to adjourn (Paradis/Wombacher 3-0, motion passed)
Deputy County Administrator
