Juvenile court eliminates detention fees

“'From an economic standpoint, the continued collection made no sense for the court and the county,' Hejmanowski said. 'We collected only a few thousand dollars a year from these costs, waived the vast majority of them because the children against whom they were assessed were indigent, but spent massive amounts of time and money, inputting, tracking, attempting collection, and then waiving and deleting the costs from our records. It costs far more to track them than we were collecting. The practice was not an efficient use of taxpayer dollars.'”
