Commissioners table offer from Clermont County

GEORGETOWN – The Brown County Commissioners received clarification on the Memorandum of Understanding from the Clermont County Commissioners with regard to housing inmates at their facility.

To date, the Brown County Commissioners have taken no action on the offer to house inmates at the Clermont County facility.

During their regular board meeting on the Brown County Commissioners reiterated their commitment to using the Butler County facility at least until the Brown County Adult Detention Center reopens. According the Commissioners that could be as early as April 1, 2016, depending on the time table for the company awarded the bid, Willo Products.

At the Commissioner meeting on Dec. 23, the Commissioners tabled the signing of the contact with Willo Products to further discus the contract with counsel before making the commitment to Willo Products for the bid.

Currently, the County his paying $60 per inmate per day to be housed in Butler County. The Clermont County offer to Brown County is for 22 inmates at a flat rate of $1,175 per day and for an additional 20 beds at $5.65 per inmate per bed, when available.

In a email to the Brown County Commissioners, Clermont County Chief Deputy Chris Willis said the flat rate covered all cost of inmates to be housed in Cell Block A and broke down the cost per inmate from the Clermont County Commissioners approved Memorandum of Understanding approved on Dec. 7. However, the Memorandum of Understanding was not given to the Brown County Commissioners until Dec. 18, in an email from Willis.

According the Willis, that is the price to cover cost of opening the portion of the Clemont County Jail.

“We are going to cover the area where you inmates will be housed with overtime,” Willis said the email to the Commissioners. “We are not hiring additional officers. Our total cost to house Brown County inmates in one cell block, ‘Cell Block A’ is $1,175 a day, which equals out to be $53.41 per bed per day. This includes overtime, inmate meals, routine medical cost, and inmate laundry.”

The additional beds can be covered with no additional overtime, but Brown County become responsible for meals, medical cost, and laundry.

The Commissioners have tabled the offer from Clermont County and said they were committed to Butler County for the time being for what they called “stepping up when needed.”

Brown County Commissioner President Daryll Gray was responsible for calling area jails when the Brown County Adult Detention Center closed and only Butler County returned the call with openings. During the month of November, the move to Butler County cost Brown County taxpayers $117,000 for the month of November for housing the inmates in Butler County.

However, the Commissioners said they would consider further action on the offer after the reopening of the Brown County Adult Detention Center. The jail is equipped to handled just 38 inmates, but if the state allows double dunking there is room for 76 inmates. Even a capacity of 76 inmates, the Brown County Adult Detention Center may not be large enough to handle the volume of inmates in this county and the further action would be necessary.
