Bed allocations for 2016 at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio were again delayed following action by board members during Wednesday’s meeting.

At the recommendation of the CCNO Financial Overview Committee, which met for about 15 minutes prior to the board meeting, board members voted to table action on bed allocations for 2016 until the Sept. 16 FOC meeting.

Current bed allocations for 2015 stand at 228 beds for the City of Toledo; 203 beds for Lucas County; 60 beds for Defiance County; 55 beds each for Fulton and Williams counties and 37 beds for Henry County.

In other business, board members authorized an additional $20,000 to finalize security upgrades that have been taking place throughout the facility.  Members also authorized a search for alternatives to employee health insurance coverage.

CCNO Executive Director Jim Dennis said Wednesday’s population stood at 590 or 92 percent.  He said the population averaged 558 or 87 percent in July.  He noted that an overcrowding emergency was declared on Friday (Aug. 21) with doors closed to Williams County and the City of Toledo in the morning but were reopened later the same day.  Mr. Dennis said an overcrowding emergency was again declared on Saturday, Aug. 23, as the population peaked to 606 and doors were closed to Williams County.  He said all doors were opened this morning to all jurisdictions.

Board members met in executive session for 48 minutes to discuss contract negotiations.  No action was taken.
