The Passaic County Freeholders voted to cut phone rates for inmate domestic telephone calls to $0.11 per minute, with no commission to the County, ensuring compliance with the new New Jersey statute (P.L. 2016 Chapter 37). The rate will exist on a month-to-month basis until a new contract is implemented. As of June 28, 2016, the rates had been $2.55 for the first minute, 25 cents for additional minutes, and the County was taking a 53% commission.
The resolution, dated December 13, 2016, can be read below.
