Shelby County Jailer Bobby Waits said Tuesday night that he expects the detention center’s population to increase by about 11 percent in 2013-14 and that new revenue will cover that additional expense.
Waits told Shelby County Fiscal Court that he is projecting about 300 inmates on the average for the next fiscal year, up from 270 this year, and will need slightly more than $3.81 million to operate the facility, an increase of $182,779 – about 5 percent – from 2012-13. Magistrates approved that budget on first reading.
