The Santa Maria jail will remain open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 8pm-4am. All other days local law enforcement in north county will have to cite and release anyone they arrest or transport them to the main jail in Goleta.
The decision is just a part of the 2011-2012 budget passed by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors this morning in Santa Barbara. A $1 million North County Jail Fund has been established to help the jail with future operating costs.
We'll have reaction to the decision tonight on KSBY News at 5 and 6.
