Contract lowers per-inmate jail costs

The County Commission on Tuesday approved an agreement with the private company that operates the county jail to lower its per-inmate fees when the jail is crowded in exchange for a two-year contract extension.

Under the agreement approved Tuesday, Corrections Corporation of America will lower its per-inmate fee to $39 per day when the jail's population exceeds 200 inmates.

County Administrator Gary Kuhl said the new agreement could save the county between $50,000 and $75,000 a year.
