    Dec 14, 2015 | Bellingham Herald

    Although the Whatcom County Council has approved a six-month extension to its jail contracts with local cities, Bellingham will start the new year without an agreement for jail service on the books. The city did not approve of a key change that the county made to the current contracts before they were extended on Tuesday, Dec. 8. "Last week County Council passed a resolution with a contract amendment that was not acceptable to me, and I don't think it would be to you," Bellingham Mayor Kelli Linville told the City Council during an afternoon meeting Monday, Dec. 14. The new contracts include a caveat allowing Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo to tell cities to move their inmates from the jail within hours once it becomes too crowded.
