A good part of the county commissioners meeting on Wednesday was used in discussing and passing four resolutions.
The first one was R-27 and dealt with costs and daily rates for those in the county jail.
The daily rate has to be established by the commissioners on an annual basis.
R-27 fixes the daily rate for confinement at $50 per day and should be paid in advance of jail time and before payments of any fines.
