The disagreement between local judges and Grays Harbor County is moving forward and the County Commissioners approved a service agreement yesterday that is a step forward for the criminal justice facilities.
The commissioners approved the agreement with KMB Design Groups to complete a study of the County’s Criminal Justice Facilities that will include the Courts, Jail and Sheriff’s Office, and the Juvenile Facility.
The study will analyze data on growth, population, caseloads, calls for service, and various other areas to find the needs of current service and the potential for expansion.
Commissioner Frank Gordon says this is a step in the right direction in an agreement that was made with the county’s judges.
The study will cost $24,048.
