Courts budget committee orders juvenile facilities to close in 2012

Six detention centers, dozens of employees affected by move to save money

Franklin County is one of six rural jurisdictions across southern and mid-Missouri that will lose its juvenile detention facility. Closing the six centers will eliminate 63.8 full-time equivalent positions and save the judiciary $1.7 million in salaries and another $1 million in benefits, according to a report prepared by a work group of the courts budget committee.
