The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is proposing to spend a little bit more money in the next fiscal year, with the biggest increase coming from the planned reopening of the courthouse annex later this year to serve probate and juvenile cases. The office proposed a $30.5 million budget for the 2016 fiscal year, according to documents obtained through an open records request, up from about $28.7 million this year. Sheriff Gerald Couch laid out his goals and priorities for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1, in an interview with The Times last week.
