In one week we should know if the Sheriff in Jefferson County will have to start releasing inmates. May 17th is the deadline for a jail levy.   Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins says if the operating levy doesn't pass he'll be forced to lay off some staff and take the jail population down from about 70 inmates to 32. He's been talking to people in the community about the levy.  The 99 cents per $1000 request would replace an operating levy that expires next month. While it wouldn't raise taxes, he says times are tough and some people say they need the lower property taxes right now. Adkins says for him the math doesn't add up because when some inmates are kept in jail things like burglaries and theft go down; but those crimes go up when they are released from jail. So in the long run the increased crime costs the community more.
