Jefferson County’s Sheriff is preparing to ask voters again in the spring to approve a Operation Jail Levy. In November, they voted it down, 55% to 44%. “I'm not really surprised it failed because every time we go out for this “Operation levy;” it initially goes down in the first vote anyway. It is an increase in the amount, but that’s what it takes to run this jail with the minimum staffing we have.” Sheriff Jim Adkins says the levy was for $1.19 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s 20 cents more than residents are currently paying.  The Sheriff says they've cut five positions, and the $1.19 is what it will take to run the jail at the current minimum staffing.
