Suzanne Starr, State Court Administration, Director of Policy and Resources, met with the board. Starr updated the board on the importance of the Rural Recruitment Program for lawyers in small communities. The state judicial system provides 50 percent of the costs, while the county would provide 35 percent and the state bar would provide 15%. The county’s dollar amount share would be $4,479.00 per year for a total of 5 years. Revenues would be brought into the county in other forms by having the lawyer here.
