New bail rules will cost taxpayers more
from Shore News Today
Despite county efforts to control anticipated cost increases associated with state-mandated bail reform, Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson said with increases in staff, health benefits, building operations, overtime and more the county is still anticipating higher costs in 2017. "With the cooperation of the county prosecutor and sheriff we have been able to trim costs,” Levinson said in a press release. “But it still leaves our taxpayers on the hook for an additional $800,000 in expenses for legislation that we do not feel is needed."
