Whereas, the Joint Powers Agreement created a Joint Policy Board to govern the operation of the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center; and

Whereas, the Joint Policy Board and aforementioned counties have, in compliance with the terms of the Joint Powers Agreement, determined to dissolve the Agreement; and

Whereas, as a result of such dissolution, Canyon County will conduct and operate the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center; and

Whereas, it appears that the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center has been operated in compliance with Idaho Code Section 20-518 and that Canyon County has committed to continue operation of the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center in compliance with Idaho Code Section 20-518; and

Whereas, Canyon County will provide an annual budget presentation and an operations briefing to the Court, at least annually and as otherwise requested, and will ensure that the facility is available for inspection by the Court, upon reasonable notice,

It is Therefore Ordered that pursuant to Idaho Code Section 20-517(1) the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center is approved as a detention facility for juvenile residents of counties within the Third Judicial District, provided that the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center continues to comply with the requirements of Idaho Code Section 20-518 and any other statutes, rules and regulations governing such detention center unless otherwise ordered by the Court.
