This mary-go-round has been going for a while now, and it looks like this time around the city is hoping off. This should get interesting.

We'll follow the trash-to-energy plant model:  Build a new facility with tax dollars then sell it to a private company that leases it back to us.

That sounds like the American Parking model.

For now it looks like we will be keeping short term prisoners in the old cells at HQ, and talk of shipping the longer term prisoners on only municipal charges to Okmulgee, at least until the ADC is revamped and put into service. Or at least that is the kind of sort of plans are at this point, from what I'm hearing.

Another new jail may be on the table.  Apparently the County Jail's problems were deeper than Glanz. 

Surprised?

If the county wants to double the costs, I don't see many options.

This will get even more interesting as the city starts to make the county more accountable for services provided.

GT posted the whole story on Facebook. It paints a bad light on both sides, but only one side as unreasonable and that is the county.

Estimate is 1.2M per year. A lot less then the county wants.

They're just in the discussion phase.  No idea where they'd put one at right now.

It's in the writeup. Where swake said. Also county has been using that space for free so it should be in okay condition. Tulsa averages 25 inmates and roughly 10 of those will divert to the new substance abuse program so we'd be more like 15. Overflow, if needed, would go to Okmulgee.
