More Act 10 Savings!

Racine County is enjoying more savings from Act 10.  The legislation gave the needed flexibility to local and county governments to balance their budgets.  This week, Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling told me the county can now outsource food service for their jail.  The result is big savings for taxpayers and will help in the crime fighting efforts in our area.  The change from doing the food service internally to outsourcing it to a company named Aramark will amount a savings of nearly $300,000.  These savings will allow the county to spend dollars on hiring a new deputy, a jail supervisor among other items.  Read more on the story from the Racine Journal Times.
