Some prisoners of each of the cities will be detained at the Yakima County jail in accordance with the agreements, which expire on Dec. 31, 2014.

All three cities will pay a daily rate of $54.75 per inmate when housing 25 inmates or fewer at the county jail.

Inmates who require special consideration for serious medical, mental or behavioral health issues will be housed at a rate of $84.75 on a daily basis.

County commissioners ap-
