Federal inmates to DeKalb County

Federal inmates will be housed in DeKalb County, following a decision made Tuesday between the DeKalb County Commission and Sheriff's Department.

However, they debated the terms of the contract before reaching an agreement.

Nearly 60 inmates will be brought to DeKalb County initially.

The Commission and the Sheriff's Department will meet again to talk about the budget when the contract is finalized.
