Arenac County Jail Contracts with State for Food Services

ARENAC COUNTY — The Arenac County Board of Commissioners has outsourced provision of food services in the county jail by contracting with the state’s Department of Corrections.

The three-year contract allows the jail to send county corrections officers to the local state prison three times a day to pick up meals and bring them to inmates in the county jail. The contract is expected to save the county $50,000 annually, according to the Arenac County Independent.
