Talk Radio 1360 am – Sioux City, Iowa

THE HEAD OF SIOUX CITY’S TAXPAYER RESEARCH COUNCIL IS ASKING WOODBURY COUNTY SUPERVISORS TO LOOK AT CHARGING MORE TO HOUSE NON-RESIDENT OFFENDERS AT THE COUNTY’S JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITY.

JAMES VAN BRUGGEN SAYS WOODBURY COUNTY TAXPAYERS ARE SUBSIDIZING THE HOUSING OF NON-COUNTY OFFENDERS.

IT COSTS $312-DOLLARS PER BED DAY TO HOUSE A JUVENILE OFFENDER:


OC….OUT OF STATE INDIVIDUALS. :22

VAN BRUGGEN SAYS IT WOULD HAVE SAVED OVER A MILLION DOLLARS TO TRANSFER WOODBURY COUNTY JUVENILES TO OTHER FACILITIES LIKE ELDORA CHEROKEE OR COUNCIL BLUFFS.

HE SAYS CHEROKEE AND COUNCIL BLUFFS CHARGE MORE PER DAY TO HOUSE OUT OF COUNTY JUVENILES AND WOODBURY SHOULD INCREASE THEIR $100 A DAY FEE:


OC……165 DOLLARS. :13

SUPERVISORS DID NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF VAN BRUGGEN’S ASSERTIONS, BUT MARK MONSON AND DAVID TRIPP SAY THE COUNTY SHOULD CHARGE MORE:


OC…..CHEAPER RATE. :18

THE BOARD SAYS THEY WILL MEET WITH JUVENILE DETENTION STAFF AND DISCUSS OPTIONS TO INCREASE REVENUE AND OPERATE THE FACILITY MORE EFFICIENTLY.
