SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - Scotts Bluff County will have to keep paying as much as $15,000 a month for two teachers it won’t use this year because its juvenile detention facility has been shut down.

KNEB reports (https://bit.ly/2dc2I0K ) county officials plan to honor the contract with Educational Service Unit #13 even though it will be costly.

County Board Chairman Mark Masterton says the county had to let the teachers know before April if they weren’t going to be needed. The county didn’t decide until the summer to shut down the juvenile detention center.

The two teachers are now working as substitutes in the region. Any income they make doing that will reduce the monthly amount the county is billed.
