Brown's $800,000 Budget Hole
Brown projected that Northampton County would receive $808,400 in revenue to house federal inmates. He apparently had big plans to warehouse federal prisoners. This might explain why he wanted a new jail at Gracedale. Instead of $808,400, the county received just $72 from Uncle Sam this year for federal prisoners.
Lamont McClure, who has replaced Brown as Exec, has had to scramble to find that money from other sources.
