SMETHPORT – McKean County is saving money when defendants in criminal cases perform community service instead of spending time in jail.
According to a 2013 report on the Good Growing Gardens (3G) program, the county last year saved $185,445 because defendants performed 10,210 hours of community service in lieu of serving 2,853 days in the county jail near Smethport.
County President Judge John Pavlock presented the 2013 report Tuesday at a meeting of the McKean County Board of Commissioners.
