Issue: Jail expansion gets bigger price tag: Committee evaluating ballot measure’s failure determines $55 million now/Taryn Brodwater, Spokesman-Review
DFO: I voted for it last time because the half-cent sales tax will provide considerable property tax relief. I’ll vote for it again this time. The problem isn’t going away. But I hope county commissioners will push this idea better this time around, if they decide to put it on the ballot again.
Interesting Sentence: “Commissioner Gus Johnson didn’t return calls seeking comment Wednesday.”
Question: Will you support a half-cent local-option tax for expand the jail if it’s on the November ballot? Or is $55M too much?
