More from Hernando County, FL:
CCA offered county commissioners a proposal for extending the contract they have (which has been in dispute; see below). Part of the proposal would rework the rate structure for the beds the county helped pay for to give CCA more revenue from them (surprise, surprise.) But when all was said and done, in full knowledge that the county has already withheld nearly half a million dollars and wants to cut half a million more, CCA's proposal would have cost the county an additional $1 million. Thankfully, the board of commissioners promptly rejected this proposal.
