5120:1-5-02 Establishment of joint county or local corrections planning boards and adoption of a comprehensive plan.

(A) If a county or a group of counties desire to receive funding from the department of rehabilitation and correction ("department") for the development, implementation and operation of a continuum of community control sanctions, then this rule establishes under what circumstances a planning board is required to be established and maintained by local corrections agencies, as well as the statutorily defined composition of such boards. This rule also establishes that a planning board is required to adopt a comprehensive plan to be included with a grant application in order to seek funding from the department for the development, implementation, and operation of community corrections programs.

(B) The board of county commissioners of a county shall establish, by a resolution as described in division (A)(1) of section 5149.34 of the Revised Code, and maintain a local corrections planning board.

The planning board shall be composed of certain classes of membership and ex-officio members which are specified in division (A)(1) of section 5149.34 of the Revised Code. However, if, for good cause, a county cannot satisfy this statutory requirement, the county must request, in writing, permission from the director of the department to waive the requirements to the extent necessary and approve a composition for the board that is otherwise consistent with the requirements.

The planning board shall adopt within eighteen months after its establishment, and from time to time shall revise, a comprehensive plan for the development, implementation, and operation of corrections services in the county. In order to be eligible for funds from the department, the board shall design the plan, as set forth in paragraph (B) of rule 5120:1-5-03 of the Administrative Code, which shall be included with a grant application as set forth in paragraph (C) of rule 5120:1-5-03 of the Administrative Code.

(C) The boards of county commissioners of multiple counties may enter into an agreement for the joint development, implementation, and operation of a continuum of community control sanctions. Such counties shall establish and maintain a joint county corrections planning board.

Subject to the waiver provisions of paragraph (B) of this rule, the board shall consist of an equal number of members of each county's local corrections planning board as established and maintained under division (A)(1) or (A)(2) of section 5149.34 of the Revised Code.

The joint planning board shall adopt within eighteen months after its establishment, and from time to time shall revise, a comprehensive plan for the development, implementation, and operation of corrections services in the group of counties. In order to be eligible for funds from the department, the board shall design the plan as set forth in paragraph (B) of rule 5120:1-5-03 of the Administrative Code, which shall be included with a grant application as set forth in paragraph (C) of rule 5120:1-5-03 of the Administrative Code.
