County supports an honest day's work: STS contract renewed, grant received for hazard mitigation plan
At their Tuesday meeting, Douglas County commissioners renewed a joint powers agreement with the state of Minnesota for the purpose of operating a Sentencing to Service (STS) program.
Sheriff Troy Wolbersen said the program has been used for several years.
STS allows criminals who have been identified as "non-dangerous offenders" to perform community work service in lieu of a jail sentence or fine. In Douglas County, STS only applies to working off fines.
