Lake County Commissioners Vote to End Residential Reentry Program

We have an update now on the future of the Residential Reentry Program in Lake County.

County commissioners voted Wednesday to end the county’s contract with the Michigan Department of Corrections.

The program had been run in Lake County for more than a decade.

Commissioners say the program was costing the county more money than it was bringing in.

The 300 bed facility also had fewer than 20 people currently housed there.

The facility will now close at the end of the month.
