Taos County gets a better rate than Mora County for housing its inmates in the San Miguel County jail.
That’s something a top Mora County official would like to change.
This week, the San Miguel County Commission approved extensions of agreements with both Mora and Taos counties.
Mora must pay $65 a day to house an inmate, while Taos gets a better rate at $50 a day. Both must pay a onetime $20 booking fee for each inmate.
Mora sends only a handful of inmates each month to the local jail, while Taos sends dozens.
