Great Town Hall meeting tonight, thank you all who attended. DO NOT forget tomorrow’s meeting, October 18, 2011 at the Thurston County Courthouse at 7 PM. Thurston County hired a consultant to review the County's current vacant jail, the Account Restitution Center. The consultant will be advising the county and the Sheriff’s office on how this facility should be used and whether it can house additional inmates.
The Nisqually Tribe projects 90 % of their inmate’s will come from our local jurisdictions, Lacey, Tumwater, Tenino, Rainier, Yelm, DOC, etc. If our County jail can open the A.R.C. that would drive the “business” back into our county rather than outsource our inmates to a “for profit” jail.
