An attempt by Commissioner Charlie Bayless to add the request as an amendment failed after Tom Bowers said it amounted to a "double payment" for the same software. Sheriff Chris Mathes attempted to explain the need for the equipment, stating that Bowers had misunderstood the request. Mathes said he was hoping not to use any of the contingency money for the jail contract to pay for the equipment. Bowers recommended using the funds to pay off a debt from workman's compensation, and the board rejected the sheriff's request. A motion was approved to pay the debt.
