Lincoln and Sagadahoc Multicounty Jail Authority
The Act to Establish the Lincoln and Sagadahoc Multicounty Jail Authority (the "Authority") was enacted on May 21, 2003 under Sec. 1. 30-A MRSA c. 17. Under this act, a Board of Directors was formed to provide for the planning, construction, equipping, operation and maintenance of a common facility for corrections. The first organizational meeting was held on December 8, 2003 and the initial founding board which consisted of twelve members, six from each County, were sworn in. Following the founding board, appointment of directors is governed by the Agreement for Operating and Governance of the Lincoln and Sagadahoc Multicounty Jail Authority which was signed by the Commissioners of Lincoln and Sagadahoc Counties on May 18, 2004. This Agreement states that the Authority will be managed by a Board of Directors that will consist of twelve members, six from each county, with no restrictions. Regular Meetings are open to the public, and held no less than six times a calendar year. Committee meetings are scheduled as needed. Please call Col.
