“I’d be hard-pressed to say we have one (juvenile) a month” incarcerated at the Southeast Kansas Juvenile Detention Center in Girard, Sheriff Bryan Murphy said, after Allen County commissioners were urged Tuesday morning to consider ending a contract with the center.

Allen County pays $6,000 a month toward the center, said County Attorney Jerry Hathaway.

With a larger population, Bourbon County pays $10,000 a month, others more, including Montgomery County at $27,000.
