Bay Minette approves inmate housing contract

The City Council this week approved a new inmate housing contract with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, putting the city in line with what other municipalities across the county are paying.

The one-year contract, approved during Tuesday’s council meeting, includes an increase in the daily housing fee to $50 per inmate at the Baldwin County Corrections Center. That’s a bump from the rate of $19 per day the city had paid last year
