County Auditor Shows Actual Cost
to Bo 61.2 Cents Govern
ment Pays but 50 Cents.
For the past three months Multno
mah County has been losing approx
imately 11 cents per day on every Fed
eral prisoner confined in the County
Jail. A tabulation prepared by County
Auditor Martin and presented yester
day to the County Commissioners
showed the cost of feeding prisoners
to be 61.2 cents a day. The Federal.
Government has been paying but 60 1
cents a day for each Federal prisoner.
The county and Government are now
in a controversy over the cost of feed
ing prisoners. The board recently sent
thee United States Marshal an ulti
matum that the Government could pay
75 cents a day beginning October 1
or move its prisoners to some other
bastile. The United States Attorney
General replied that the Oregon laws
provided that all prisoners should be
fed at cost.
The county still demands 75 cents
a day, the County Commissioners as
serting that this price would reimburse
Multnomah County the money it has
lost on Federal prisoners for the past
three months. The officials hope to
reach a compromise agreement, but 61.2
cents will at least be the minimum
charge to the Government.
