of the money goes into the county general revenue fund The bad check fund is wholly controlled by the prosecutor and is generated by fees collected on bad checks He said the funds gener- ated are supposed to be used to collect bad checks but agreed sala- ries could be paid from it However he said he is not sure that the fund will generate the $4000 increase mi nadA wnunucQ 0X1 ncn Sheriffs
