Full faith and credit bonds will pay for the projet.  That means the county wil  borrow the money with the understanding they will generate enough revenue to cover payments.

 

County Commissioner Tammy Baney says this will help us deal with the jail overcrowding for the foreseeable future.

 

"This is as trim as you can get.  This is a Hyundai.  It's sufficient.  It might not be the smoothest ride, but it's conservative and I appreciate that.  And in today's eocnomic climate, there's a tendency to push the envelope.  I'm glad this is conservative and we can do this without raising taxes and that is huge."

The work is scheduled to start this spring and finish by June 2014.
