Lee County-  Some Lee County parents aren't happy the county is considering outsourcing their Parks and Recreation Department.  One of them plans to voice their displeasure to commissioners Tuesday night. 

The county is evaluating all its departments including, the Parks and Recreation department to determine if out-sourcing the work would save the county money.

"In some places it works, in some other places it doesn't work and so the commission wants us to look and see the possibility of out-sourcing various departments," said Alan Ours, Lee County Administrator. 

In one instance it hasn't worked. Ours said the building maintenance department was out-sourced and now the county is considering taking the work over again.  Ours said it would be April before the county decides what work may be out-sourced.
