Jail Food Contract Amended


The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 ​— ​Supervisor Janet Wolf voted no ​— ​on 9/17 to amend the contract with Aramark Correctional Services, implementing an immediate 2.34 percent increase in the cost of inmate and staff meals at the County Jail and allowing the sheriff to approve such increases until the contract expires in 2019. The 2013-14 fiscal year had budgeted for a 3 percent increase; the 2.34 percent saves more than $8,000. Supervisor Salud Carbajal didn’t like that staff meals cost three times as much as inmates’, saying, “When we all eat the same, it reminds us whether it’s good or not.”
