LAGRANGE - Inmates at the LaGrange County Jail are losing some privileges following behavior that damaged a grinder in the wastewater line.

LaGrange County Commission President Jac Price will meet Wednesday with jail officials and a Fort Wayne company.

Sheriff Terry Martin told the commissioners this morning that the damage could prove costly.

"We have a problem with inmates flushing things down the toilet that shouldn't be going down the toilet. We cleaned it out a couple months ago and they plugged it up again. So the grinder's not working. I've taken commissary away from the inmates for at least a month until we figure our what we're going to do there," Martin said.

Martin said parts for the damaged grinder must come directly from Japan and could take up to six months for delivery.

In other business, Commissioners approved the purchase of five computers to replace units that were running Windows X-P which is no longer supported by Microsoft. The purchase price was $2,950. They also approved the purchase of three printers for Superior Court at a cost of $2,055.

They also authorized the purchase of window blinds for the west half of the county office meeting room from Creative Interiors of Sturgis at a cost of $1,180.
