Today the Madras City Council is hearing about a new operating levy request for the County Jail. Last November voters rejected a levy asking for $1.19 per $1000 of assessed value.  In the new request, voters are being asked to approve 99 cents per $1000, the same amount they are currently paying. Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins say if this levy fails they'll have to start releasing inmates: “If it fails this time around we're going to have to make some drastic changes in the staffing of the jail and also in the number of inmates that we currently house. In the last couple of months, we've been averaging around 70 - 75 inmates and if the levy fails we're going to have to reduce that number to 32.” He says half of those 32 inmates are from Crook County.  He says a strong jail acts as a good deterrent for those on parole and probation.
