County commissioners approve a resolution setting a daily rate to be charged for housing out of county inmates at the Gallatin County Detention Center at today's meeting.
That amount is $119.22. This number will take effect January 1st and will apply to any inmate from counties that do not currently have a contract with Gallatin County.
So far, for 20-12 the jail has had an average daily population of 90 inmates. Gallatin County currently has inmate contracts with Madison, Sweet Grass, Lewis and Clark, Park counties along with the U-S marshals.
