Yakima City and County Looking to Reach Jail Contract Agreement
The City of Yakima and Yakima County may be reaching an agreement to house inmates at the county jail house.
The city council will be asked to consider a new five-year contract agreement with the county tomorrow night, which takes in about half the inmates arrested by the city police.
The agreement would save the city about $600,000 a year.
The city is also currently looking at expanding the city jail in the near future.
