Montgomery County Jail Justice Committee Members Named

Mar 23, 2017

Members have been appointed to a newly created, independent Montgomery County Jail Justice Committee.

Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services

The Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services is taking steps to sell 4 of its facilities.

The Board is looking to find new owners for its Calumet, Jergens, Kuntz and Liberty centers. Each facility provides a variety of services to people with developmental disabilities.

The move was prompted by new guidelines from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Under the new rules, by 2024, county boards will no longer be allowed to both provide services to people on federal waivers and manage their cases.
