Campbell officials balk at paying Mahoning County jail bill



Published: Wed, November 6, 2013 @ 9:09 p.m.

CAMPBELL — Council urged city residents to speak out against a bill for about $70,000 issued by Mahoning County for the housing of inmates in the county jail who face municipal charges.

The city was billed for the cost last year, said George Levendis, council president, who added that it was “the first time in 60 years” Campbell had received such a bill. The bill was resubmitted almost immediately after the city’s release from fiscal emergency in early October, and the county demanded payment in full.

“We’re on the hook for this money, but this council doesn’t feel it’s fair, and we’re going to fight it a little bit,” said Levendis, during tonight's meeting. “It’s up to [the county commissioners] to decide what they want to do, but we’ll fight as far as we can fight.”
