Allen judges withdraw budget appeal

Allen Superior Court has withdrawn its budget appeal for 2015, accepting a $5.54 million budget unchanged from this year, Chief Judge Wendy Davis said today.

In a letter to members of the County Council, Davis said the appeal budget of $61,873 beyond this year's allocation was justified to support essential needs, including "an additional amount to provide legal services for those most unable to represent themselves."

But given that 2015 revenues are expected to fall significantly short of expectations, and budget appeals could affect employee raises and health insurance, the court's judges have withdrawn the appeal, Davis wrote.
