City, County Jail Agreement Halfway There

The Meridian City Council has approved a new contract with Lauderdale County for housing inmates at the county jail.

The agreement must also be approved by the Lauderdale County board of supervisors.

For the last several years, city and county officials have had a tough time coming to an agreement.

City inmates were moved out of the county jail last year for a time, because the two sides couldn't decide what a fair per-inmate charge should be.
