Inmate Housing Reimbursement

Public Act No. 118 of 1984 allows County Board of Commissioners to seek reimbursement for any expenses incurred in relation to the charges for which a person is sentenced including period of pre-trial detention to the Jail. The Sheriff Department begins billing inmates immediately upon sentencing.

Inmates are required to reimburse Livingston County for certain expenses incurred while incarcerated. This law allows for a fee up to $60 per day for room and board, plus medical expenses. We charge $45 per day.

Booking Fee

Public Act 124 of 2003 allows us to collect a $12 booking fee from inmates. This fee is charged to their account at the time of booking.

Inmate Account Balances

Inmates account balances at release may be applied to fees owed, if applicable. The balances are the responsibility of the inmate. All accounts are turned over to Celco Ltd for payments processing regardless of account status.

Late Payments

Failure to make payment arrangements within the first 30 days of receipt of an invoice may result in collection activity and/or legal action.
