County Sheriff told Commissioners Court Thursday that there were more federal prisoners than local prisoners in the county jail over the weekend Housing these federal prisoners is creating an income flow of about a year for Comal County which helps local taxpayers Sheriff Jack Bremer said the num ber of federal prisoners in the county jail varies but there are always some being housed here Over the week end the jail housed 64 federal pris oners and as of Friday morning 42 of the 104 inmates in the jail were federal prisoners Bremer said these prisoners are usually either marshal prisoners or immigration prisoners Bremer said the number of immi gration prisoners housed in Comal County is usually higher because of the proximity of the county jail to the immigration office in the Windcrest area in San Antonio This has made it easier to take pris oners to Comal County than take them to downtown San Antonio the sheriff said Another reason is we run a good jail system here Theres nothing wrong with said Bremer Bremer said that the county usual ly only gets S20S22 per day for hold ing a state prisoner He said this amount is determined using a basic formula and its He said it costs more than that when you figure in all the operation and maintenance costs of the facility He said the money received for federal prisoners is more accurate The coun ty jail system is audited annually and from this audit it is determined how much is costs to house a prisoner Comal County gets S44 per day for each federal prisoner held at the coun ty jail If we didnt have them in here we would still have the same over head What these prisoners do is cut our overhead to the tune of threequar ters of a million dollars a said Bremer Bremer said he recently read that state prisons will likely be full by the end of the year However he said this will not have an effect on the 146 inmatecapacity county jail He said he would not take prisoners if he did not have the space for them Homecoming Queen
