At the regularly scheduled meeting of the Metcalfe County Fiscal Court on June 22, the agreement with the Barren County Correctional Center was discussed.

Jailer Randal Shive was present.

“It’s your only resolution,” Shive said, reiterating that although the new agreement with the jail is not the formerly agreed upon price, it is the only option available at this time.

It will now cost $40 per day, per inmate.

John Seward of the South Central Kentucky Workforce Development Board was on hand to discuss the inter-local agreement.

“They do a good job,” said Judge/Executive Stilts.

Seward explained to the court that if they misuse funds it would be quickly corrected because it is closely monitored.

Lynn Lunz of the Metcalfe County Sheriff’s Office was present and presented the 2020 tax settlement.
