new jail proposal, let me ask does the sheriff and county commisioners has 3 quotes on this proposal as is standard business practice? or are they after a big budget so the can build a bigger jail system than we really need. Option in my mind is just build a new one the same size as we currently have. Please dont build a huge system that older people on fixed income cant afford. Question what happens to the people that cant afford the increased taxes and loose there homes. Have we really thought about that??
