SUBJECT: Special Services Contract Renewal
The State Troopers have requested to renew the special services contract with them. I recommend that we obtain permission from the council to enter into this contract with the state.
We have had a special services contract with the troopers for over 25 years. After they moved to the Anchor Point post a few years ago the only remaining service of significance that we provide to them is pre-arraignment prisoner care. Arrestees must be arraigned within 24 hours of being arrested. After arraignment they become wards of the state Department of Corrections and we are compensated for dealing with them through the state jail contract.
The Troopers propose to renew this contract at last years rate of $36,000. I feel that is fair compensation for the service we provide to them.
