BENTON -- Inmate meals at the Scott County Jail are going up in cost but it could have been worse.

Glenn Klander Jr., general manager of correctional services for Aramark, and Chris Brooks, the front line manager, met with Scott County Commissioners during their regular Tuesday meeting to discuss the price increase.

According to the food service contract, Aramark is able to raise the cost per meal annually at the beginning of the year based on either the consumer price index or a "market basket approach," which uses actual foods included in inmate meals to determine the amount of the increase.
