Inmates from flood zone give county jail a revenue boost

Email News Alerts

The Hubbard County Correctional Center got some much-needed good news, in the form of Clay County inmates.

A bus carrying 28 prisoners arrived March 27 from the flooded county.


The inmates may stay as long as "three to four weeks," jail administrator Sherri Klasen told the Hubbard County Board of Commissioners Wednesday, bringing in revenues "of $9,000 weekly."

FEMA is apparently footing the bill because the inmates are here for flood-related reasons.
