More inmates putting a strain on county jail

October 11, 2012

MARSHALL CO. — A high jail population is costing more taxpayer dollars.
As a result, Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin requested one additional appropriation and two transfers in the total amount of $36,215 at Monday night’s Marshall County Council meeting.
The extra funds are needed for prisoner meals ($17,000), fuel costs and vehicle maintenance for the sheriff’s department ($15,715), and prisoner supplies ($3,500).
“We have 155 inmates currently in the jail,” said Chamberlin.
According to Chamberlin, that’s about 40 percent higher than the beginning of 2012.
