Motion was made by Leven and seconded by Wilson to enter into Executive Session Pursuant to Title 25 Section 307 (B) (4) regarding Kay County District Court Case number CV-06-28PC, wherein the Board of County Commissioners are a party to the matter.Motion carried:Schieber, aye; Leven, aye; Wilson, aye.

 

Motion was made by Leven and seconded by Wilson to reconvene to the regular commissionerís meeting.Motion carried:Schieber, aye; Leven, aye; Wilson, aye.

 

Chairman Schieber recommended to those in attendance from the Justice Facilities Authority, since they had a quorum represented, not to make any comments or ask any questions in order to comply with the open meeting laws.

 

District Attorney Mark Gibson said he received extremely good news. He announced Charles Broadway, Attorney for the Department of Health, who has been processing the fines and law suit against the county jail, had contacted him.Broadway informed Gibson that he had sent an investigator to the jail to re-measure and re-figure and found that since the day the Kay County Jail opened it should have been rated not for 108 inmates but for 147 inmates.Gibson said we have actually never been over population.

 

Gibson said Broadway was embarrassed.The bulk of the $95,000 fines and the bulk of the trauma we have been going through as far as the lawsuit has been due to population, there is no explanation, except for human error, not only them but through the years.Gibson said this has been an issue we have directly confronted them about time and time again. ††Gibson said what that means is once the fines were opposed we have been in a pellet situation with the district court.Broadway has filed a motion to remand the administrative law of judge who first found us not in compliance, because that is the level it has to go back to in order to decide what to do from here.Broadway pointed out that all the fines were not due to population, there were a number of other issues.

 

Gibson said this is huge news and told Sheriff Van Hoesen to bring the inmates in Osage County back to Kay County.

 

Gibson said Commissioner Leven had told him he had done some measuring in the jail and said from his measurements and DOH standards he felt 40 beds could be added in one cell block.Gibson commended Leven for his findings.

 

Wilson said even with this good news we can not back off on what the future needs are of this jail.We still have problems that need to be addressed.

 

Gibson agreed and said there are a lot of other issues than population and we need to move forward.

 

 

Leven said the next big hurtle is getting money to do what we need to do in the jail.
