Sentence to Service saves county money, jail time

Email News Alerts

Cuts to many state programs mean lawmakers will no longer fund community service programs for inmates after 2010, which could mean $23,800 locally.


But Hubbard County's program, with an annual budget of $140,000, may still survive financially, thanks to township and public contributions for the popular services it offers.
