The Johnson County Board of Supervisors has agreed to a two-year extension of the county’s contract with Linn County for the housing of minors in juvenile detention. 

The contract has existed for more than 10 years, and it has allowed Johnson County to reserve four beds each day in the detention service for juveniles. In the past, the county reserved six beds, but when the number of juveniles retained decreased, it paid for less space.

The supervisors agreed to a two-year extension with a 4 percent increase in the amount the county pays Linn County in the first year and then a 1 percent increase the second year.

The county is billed for each additional bed above those reserved.
