There will be no new jail task force for Hall County.
The Board of Supervisor's rejected the proposal Tuesday that would have formed a new committee.
"What are we waiting for? Another problem to happen?"
That was Gary Quandt's question to his fellow Hall County Board of Supervisors.
He is the man behind the jail task force motion discussed at Tuesday's meeting.
"It seems like there might be a lack of communication between the two entities, law enforcement and the corrections facility," he said.
It's a problem that he says warrants a new committee that consists of various law enforcement, corrections and county officials.
"We built that facility for public safety and somehow we've got to get law enforcement working better with our jail," Quandt said.
Board member Scott Arnold said while the goal is good, the timing isn't.
"I dont think at this time when you have a case that is currently in the system that you're really going to have anybody that's able to be open," he said.
That case involves a prisoner booking incident at the jail.
Just last week the county attorney's office began investigating Assistant Jail Director Jimmy Vann for misdemeanor official misconduct by a publid servant.
Police say Vann refused to take a prisoner.
Arnold said that case is the reason to wait.
"I think at this point its a wait and see what happens with the current issue. Once that's resolved, then we move forward," he said.
The board ultimately agreed and voted down the proposal six to one.
