NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) – Adams County Sheriff Chuck Mayfield says he can save about $53,000 a year by paying someone else to feed prisoners at the local jail.
Mayfield tells The Natchez Democrat that he is looking at a contract with Valley Food Services.
Mayfield says the $198,000 cost of the contract would be included in the $200,000 food budget for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1, 2010, and ending Sept. 31, 2011.
