When the Boise City Council meets Tuesday, Oct. 6, lawmakers will be asked to approve a new contract with the Ada County Jail. 

The new contract looks much like the old: the $70 per inmate rate—paid by the Boise Police Department to the Ada County Sheriff's Office—is identical to the one included in the soon-to-lapse Fiscal Year 2015 agreement.

The cost has already been built into the city of Boise's approved budget for Fiscal Year 2016.
