Looks like the City of Chelan will pay a bit more to Chelan County next year to handle prosecution of its cases. At its meeting Tuesday, the Chelan City Council approved a prosecution services agreement with Chelan County. The city has contracted with the county since 2004 for prosecution of misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor crimes. The city pays the county on a per-case basis; in the last contract, the city paid 275-dollars per case. City Attorney Quentin Batjer told the council the county wants to up that rate a bit:

The agreement is based upon the total number of 110 cases which were prosecuted during the 12-month period of September 1 of last year through August 31 of this year. The total amount of the contract is 33-thousand dollars. Batjer told the council that's a lot less than the city had been paying a few years back:

The 33-thousand dollars compares with the prior contract cost of 26-thousand 400 dollars.
