Toledo Give Withdrawal Notice

The city of Toledo has announced it’s inten­tion to with­draw from the Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio, due to it’s objec­tions to recent amend­ments to the CCNO bylaws that Toledo claims would put an addi­tional finan­cial bur­den on the city. The Bryan Times reports that CCNO was informed by a let­ter from the Mayor of Toledo at CCNO’s spe­cial board meet­ing held Wednes­day. The city of Toledo specif­i­cally objected to amend­ments that require the city to pay for at least 228 jail beds per year at CCNO, regard­less of how many jail beds the city actu­ally uses. It also would require Toledo to pay for offend­ers sen­tenced in Toledo Munic­i­pal Court under the Ohio Revised Code instead of requir­ing Lucas County to pay for such offend­ers as required by Ohio law.
