Warden Jeff Hornberger reported the population included 16 females, 69 males, and two temporary transfers. There were 63 commits and 56 releases during June.
A support services review showed 147 inmates were seen by a counselor, one inmate was under suicide watch, and 15 inmates were seen by the contracted psychiatrist. Pharmacy costs were also down for the month.
A report from the jail nurse revealed 45 inmates were seen by a nurse, 41 inmates were seen by Seneca Medical, five inmates went for hospital tests, two inmates went to doctors in Clarion County, five inmates were seen in the ER, two inmates went to Women’s Health, and three inmates are going to dentists.
“We had six misconduct reviews and four grievance reviews during June, the least amount in a month for a long time,” said Hornberger.
The jail budget report also showed 44 percent of the budget was used for the year and Hornberger pointed out that was good because it was the half-way point for the year. Out of a 2019 $2,630,174.02 budget, $1,666,670.18 has now been spent.
Two roof HVAC rooftop units are being replaced by Deets Mechanical. The jail building has only had four units replaced since it was built, but one of two new units replaces one that was previously repaired.
Attending the monthly meeting were chairman Wayne Brosius, Ed Heasley, District Attorney Mark Aaron, and Treasurer Tom McConnell.
