A proposed Budget Amendment for the Livingston County Jail & Public Safety Complex, addresses the shortfall in Livingston County Sheriff Martin Meredith’s FY 2013 budget due to the housing of Cook County Inmates. The FY 2013 Budget was originally approved based on an average of 30 Cook County Detainees. The Livingston County Jail currently houses an average of 65 Cook County Detainees resulting in increased expenses as well as increased revenues. Revenues from outside housing were estimated at $529,500 (based on an average of 30 detainees) for the year with $763,800 being billed to date. The total annual revenue is now estimated at $969,358. The proposed amendment is currently on display for public viewing and will be presented to the County Board on September 12th for approval.
