4 Cities Pass Jail Contracts with County
The Grays Harbor County Commissioners passed jail services contracts with Montesano, Hoquiam, Ocean Shores, and Cosmopolis on Monday.
The county has already passed their agreement with McCleary and has only to resolve their contracts with Aberdeen, Elma and Westport. Grays Harbor County Commissioner Wes Cormier says that those agreements are in the works.
The jail contracts were the topic of controversy last year when it was first announced that the county was increasing the cost for the agreements, but after negotiations both the cities and county have agreed to a new contract that will continue until either side decides to terminate.
