Examiner: County jail task force debate continues

Deets:

"Jackson County legislators on Monday expressed concerns that County Executive Frank White Jr. is moving too slowly to address safety issues at the County Detention Center . . . Meanwhile, there was no action Monday on a multi-million dollar package of immediate repairs to the existing jail. Those are the high-priority items that the consultant detailed in September. Burnett put that package at $14 million to $15 million last Monday, and the next day White said $16 million."

Money line:

“This will be the fourth different task force or study that we’ve had,” said Legislator Dennis Waits, D-Independence.

Frank is playing stall ball.

This task force is a sham, good on the Legislature for calling it like it is. Now do what you got to to block Frank White from hiring another damn consultant and cut his budget so he has to actually do some work, his awful advisors need to be sent packing.

^^^ Hope the county legislature can make heads or tails out of the budget Frank has proposed. I tried looking at it on the county website and it's a hot mess.

Just enlist the members of the task force on crime. Now that problem is solved, they can turn to the incarceration side of things.

Do not dump more money in that dump. If the airport is ripe to be torn down, Jackson county jail is over ripe.

So Frank wants to delay? The next inmate or guard attacked in that jail ought to sue for TEN$ OF MILLION$$$$$ because it's obvious that rather than get busy fixing the problem the guy who's supposed to be in charge wants to just stall. That's neglect, that's negligence, and the county should pay big time for LETTING THIS CRISIS ONLY GET WORSE.
