Jail to save $70,000 on food contract

-A A +A
By Jamie Baker-Nantz

Grant County Jailer Terry Peeples has figured out a way to save $70,000.

Peeples, who took office Jan. 3, made a campaign promise to cut expenses at the jail and after only three months in office, he’s got the cost of meals to 96 cents per meal by renegotiating the food service contract.

That’s a savings of 19 cents per meal over the current meal price of $1.15

“We ran on wanting to cut expenses and the three largest at the jail are payroll, medical and food service, so we wanted to bid it out to lower our costs,” Peeples said.
