It varies by jurisdiction, but generally, the heads of the various departments, or other prominent people, run for seats on a board of commissions. The board votes to pass every day laws like zoning, and safety ordinances for stuff like fire codes. The board also makes the contracts for the county for stuff like trash collection and towing. A lot of counties have rules about what kinds of laws the commission can pass, leaving the major changes, like a raise in property taxes, up to the voters. In that case, a "referendum" is added to the next ballot, and each voter can vote yes or no. Many counties have a percentage level set in order for the referendum to pass. In other words, not just a majority of the votes, but, say, at least 60% of the votes must be "yes.'

To answer your first question...when in jail...prior to release a check of an individuals record will determine if there are any outstanding warrants elsewhere. If there are outstanding warrants, a "hold" is placed upon the individual. Upon release from incarceration, they are immediately picked up by the agency placing the "hold." Because your BFF neglected to complete community service, they violated their probation. The court can "vacate" the probation and send your BFF back to serve any time originally ordered by the court.

I don't know about TN, but in CA: He will have to wait in County 1 until his charges are resolved before being transferred to County 2. Sometimes, the Counties can be coordinated to reach a "global" resolution (i.e. a sentence that satisfies both the new offense and the PV) - but he still has to wait in jail until the transfer to be released. For failure to do community service, he might not have to serve jail time, especially if he earns some time while he waits (I don't know TN law, though). However, the Court may change his community service time to jail time, and apply the credit he's earned while waiting. He may simply be put on probation in the new case, with some fines, and have his probation revoked and reinstated on his current probation and allowed to finish his community service. That is, of course, if he admits guilt. If he wants to fight it, he'll be waiting longer.

Probation violations usually involve jail time. You get probation to avoid being in jail, but also sign and agree to certain provisions.
