Judge says court needs coordinator
St. Croix County's judges are asking to move up full implementation of a drug court by hiring a coordinator this year.
Judge Eric Lundell reported that the county's drug court is up and running. It now has four offenders participating, and a fifth is expected soon.
The courts are applying for a grant to pay a coordinator for 2007, but even without the grant, judges feel a coordinator is needed and would like to hire one yet this year, said Lundell.
