Brown County Commissioners Court members will consider approving a lease between the county and TrueCore Behavioral Solutions, the private company that occupies a county-owned building and provides services to youthful offenders, when they meet at 9 a.m. Monday.
As part of the same action, commissioners will consider authorizing County Judge Paul Lilly to sign a contract will TrueCore.
In November, commissions court members declined to renew the TrueCore lease for $8,000 a month in a 3-2 vote and opted to go out for bids.
Commissioners indicated then that they would ask TrueCore to remain in the building, located on FM 3254 across from the Ron Jackson state school, and continue providing services.
The building was previously occupied by G4S Youth Services, which leased the facility for $1 a year but with the requirement to spend $200,000 in improvements over the five-year lease, then-County Judge Ray West said in November.
TrueCore bought the controlling stock of G4S’s youth division, West said then.
