NEWPORT-Moving ahead with efforts to address courthouse overcrowding, members of the Cocke County Legislative Body voted Thursday to hire one fulltime and one part-time bailiff.

Finance Committee Chairman Phil Killion moved to fund the positions for the remainder of the fiscal year, with the matter to be re-examined in planning for next year's budget.

"Can we afford this," asked CLB member Calvin Ball.

"Yes, we have money in the undesignated fund balance," replied CLB Chair Norman Smith.
