Go Ahead, Make Ray’s Day

Polk County leadership wants a new jail, and Commissioner Ray Gasperson thinks some more financial planning might be in order. It did not seem wise to make such a heavy investment with almost no financial planning, such as setting aside a certain amount in a few consecutive budgets a priori. The design alone is expected to cost almost $300,000.

Gasperson said concerning financing a new jail, he’d love to see a bond referendum.
