|Warden asks to Raise Daily Jail Fees
|BROOKVILLE – An increase in daily fees for housing out-of-county inmates was proposed to the Jefferson County Jail Board earlier this week. Warden Tom Elbel said the county fee is currently $55, but costs are going up. Other counties have increased their fees to $60, $65 or $75. When asked if it would make a difference, the board said it would not make a difference due to the low numbers of out-of-county inmates that are housed in the Jefferson County Jail. The discussion will continue at next month's meeting.
