Washington County Settles on Inmate Housing Fees

Chicot Memorial

WASHINGTON COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Washington County Board of Supervisors has settled on a fee for housing inmates from Arcola, Metcalfe, Leland, and Hollandale at the Washington County Regional Correctional Facility. Supervisors were surprised to learn earlier this month that inmates from those communities were being housed for free, at the expense of Washington County, while Greenville, which had a prior contract with the county was paying $25 per night per inmate. Other towns in the county without a formal contract will now be charged $30 per night, per inmate.
