Strickland Proposes Moving MSARC to the County

Posted By on Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 3:14 PM

After Mayor Herenton's update on MSARC to the City Council's executive committee, council member Jim Strickland proposed moving the Memphis Sexual Assault Resource Center to Shelby County government.

"It's a regional service, so it makes more sense as a county organization, just like the health department," he said.

The proposal was later held for two weeks, but Strickland says he will propose de-funding MSARC at tomorrow night's City Council budget hearing.

If approved, such a move would skirt the mayor's authority over the center and give the County Commission a chance to pick it up, if it so desires.
