Costs of jail solution mount

Hamilton Co.'s Butler option raising doubts

BY DAN HORN | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

Police haven't charged Antonio Mathis with any new crimes since his arrest last month, but the cost of his drug case for taxpayers keeps growing.

 

That's because Mathis is among 200 Hamilton County inmates now housed at the Butler County Jail, a move that is consuming more tax dollars than some lawyers, judges and county officials expected.

I thought the plan was to keep already sentenced criminals in Hamilton and those awaiting trial in Hamilton Co. This would make the most sense, and prevent the above.

^huh?

 

Yes, if they are sentenced, they should be in prison, and that probably means the trials are over, so send them to Hamilton instead of those who are awaiting or in the process of a trial. Keep them downtown/queensgate.

Defendants escape jail time

Hundreds released because of overcrowding

BY KIMBALL PERRY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

Hundreds of defendants have escaped time behind bars because there is no room at the Hamilton County jail - even though county taxpayers have spent more than $500,000 in the last six weeks to house overflow inmates in Butler County.

Proposal would raise Hamilton Co. rate to 6.75%

Stuff you buy in Hamilton County would cost more under a proposed quarter-cent sales tax increase - to pay for a new jail - to be announced today by top Hamilton County leaders.

yeah......great progressive thinking Hamilton County leaders.  This is there solution to everything...lets increase the sales tax.  I'm sure that the citizens of Hamilton County will go for this one after your terrible projections of revenue from the previous increase.  I thought the leaders in HC were conservatives for the most part....where is there fiscal policy and why cant they open their minds at all for new possible ideas.

 

I would also use money generated from a casino to fund the jail....so that would mean that HC officials should put their clout behind the casino effort in Cincy instead of against it.  That would seem to make sense to me..why keep taxing your shrinking tax base when you could get the money from somewhere else?

Jail sales tax in trouble

BY KIMBALL PERRY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

A proposal to increase the Hamilton County sales tax to fund a new $225 million jail could be in trouble.

 

Commissioner Phil Heimlich, one of the leading proponents of increasing the sales tax one-quarter cent to pay for the jail and a property tax rollback, wanted to present a resolution today to start the process of having his proposal go before voters in the fall election.

City offers county 'tent jail'

Structure near former Workhouse would hold 800 inmates

A majority of Cincinnati City Council members will announce today an idea to build temporary jail facilities adjacent to the River City Correctional Facility on Colerain Avenue - eight structures made of bricks and topped by heavy canvas that would house up to 800 inmates until a permanent new jail can be built.

I was at the county commissioners meeting and they (without actually voting) denied this as a possibility...they pretty much said that if the city wants to use their money for these jails why not just skip this and give us money for the real thing...I love Todd Portune...also they voted to allow for the discussion of not only a 20 year 1/4 cent increase but also discuss shorter terms...they put on the table 4,5,6,10,15,and 20 tax increases... they are going to try and figure out which one works the best... it sounded like Dewine wanted something shorter than 20 years...

Whatever eventually gets built, it had better be absolutely huge.  Cincinnati needs a reputation as a place where criminals are jailed to the fullest extent of the law.  Today's revolving-door jail is inadequate, and it's part of the reason I see so many worthless pieces of trash drive in from KY, Clermont, and Indiana and troll around my neighborhood looking for hookers and drugs.

Agree and I still think it should be built in the city, preferably Queensgate.  How about the old Hudepohl Brewery Location?

I'm generally pretty quick to bash the county for anything and everything I can, but wow:

 

"We'll build them and hand it to you, and you'll have to find a way to operate them," Ghiz said to committee members Monday, as if she were explaining the situation to the county. "If you choose not to do that, so be it."

 

Wow, Leslie - talk about a positive team-based attitude!  Working together to solve problems, that's the Ghiz way!

 

"I'm tremendously sorry it's being received by the county the way it is."

Uh, yeah, sure you are...

 

"But it will be over my dead body if we continue to sit back and allow crime to be committed."

 

That's a straw man.  Show me anyone on the county's side who has argued, "My plan is to sit back and allow crime to be committed."  Nonsense.  Their plan is to ship folks to Butler County.  And the money you're blowing on these structures could be used to expand that program, and could do so immediately.

 

So, is that a better plan than the temporary structures?  I don't know.  Seems like that would be a pretty easy thing to do a financial analysis of - figure out the total costs of building and running the facility with temporary structures; then figure out how many inmates can be housed in Butler County over five years with that money; and compare 800 with the Butler County numbers.

 

But does the finance committee have those numbers?  If not, Ghiz's statements are stupid.  If so, why aren't they trumpeting the numbers?

 

And if it is more cost-effective to build these structures, then I would think a responsible adult would want to answer Deters's list of concerns:

There won't be a facility on hand for meals and laundry; they won't comply with zoning codes; they are not secure; there will be no space for medical facilities, kitchens, visitation and recreation.

 

Ghiz is a travesty for a council member.  Perfectly willing to blow our money if it means she won't have to answer legitimate concerns...just amazing.

Don't people in Hamilton County have issues with high taxes?  At least that is the perception...

 

Are they telling me that there is no other way to build a 2,000 bed jail without raising taxes?  If I was a county official I would be hesitant to raise taxes in a county that is losing population.

At the same time I don't understand the city residents desire to keep it out of the city.  These would be new "city" jobs.  Now I realize that most of us on here wouldn't be interested in these jobs but they are still jobs.  It would help local residents and for the ones that came from outside the city, it would bring in additional income tax.  This jail should be built in Queensgate, end of story.  The exterior should look like a POMO office building with faux glass materials to help further disguise the look of a jail.  Queensgate is the only neighborhood with 0 residents and a new jail with a POMO look (midrise) would help clean up the overly industrial look of Queensgate.
