Crowd attends county board meeting to discuss proposed behavioral care center

Another meeting will be held on June 14 at 6:30 p.m. in Sparta

Quite a crowd was in attendance at the May 27 Randolph County Board of Commissioners meeting, with the vast majority wishing to speak about the proposed behavioral health center.

The commissioners have been discussing the idea of utilizing American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to both renovate the Randolph County Care Center as well as transform half of the building into a behavioral care unit for some time.
