New fees coming for work release

New fees for people serving sentences under work release will be considered at the June 16 meeting of county commissioners. Tim Clark, an officer at the county sheriff’s department, made a short presentation at Monday’s county commissioner meeting which outlined the program.

Under the new program, those on the work release program will be monitored with a satellite tracking system. This will allow officers at the jail to track their whereabouts on a second-by-second basis, much the same as is commercially available with a smartphone.

The program was tabled until the June 16 meeting to allow more time for the implementation of a fee schedule.
