gov­erns ev­ery­thing from how they stream­line and for­mal­ize the regis­tra­tion process so ev­ery­body uses the same process, how we make sure that of­fi­cials are paid and doc­u­mented, and how we han­dle things such as con­cus­sion pro­to­col and safety poli­cies,” Young said.

As far as Epps’ pro­ba­tion, Young out­lined the de­tailed terms of the sanc­tion.

“This pro­ba­tion

doesn’t pro­hibit Mr. Epps from us­ing county fa­cil­i­ties. It doesn’t even limit him from us­ing from us­ing county fa­cil­i­ties. He has the same right to use them like ev­ery other ci­ti­zen un­der the rules that you adopt,” Young said. “Essen­tially there are six sep­a­rate con­di­tions of his pro­ba­tion, start­ing with he can­not ad­ver­tise any county fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing the Po­plar Springs Gym to be his fa­cil­ity. He’s re­quired to use county fa­cil­i­ties and abide by the rules you’ve adopted. He’s re­quired to follow the

same rental poli­cies, he’s re­quired to re­pair any dam­age that he may do or that teams un­der his ju­ris­dic­tion and con­trol may do, and he’s re­quired to com­ply with all regis­tra­tion and sched­ul­ing re­quire­ments. As long as he abides by these terms, he can use these fa­cil­i­ties like any­body else.”

If Epps fails to com­ply with the stip­u­la­tions in the pro­ba­tion, he could be sub­jected to fur­ther ac­tion in­clud­ing the sus­pen­sion of his priv­i­leges to use the gym al­to­gether.
