County reduces contract with HSI

Washington County commissioners voted to revise the county's contract with Human Services, Inc., the nonprofit agency that provides domestic abuse treatment services in the county.

The new contract is not to exceed $25,000, which reduces the county's funding for domestic violence services for the last six months of 2009 by $61,250.

The change in the contract shifts from an overall program subsidy to providing a subsidy for indigent offenders only.
