$40 Million More For New Jail?


Thursday, September 12, 2013

Sheriff Bill Brown is sharing plans to apply for a $40 million grant available through Senate Bill 1022. The bill, passed last summer, authorizes bond sales to pay for jail upgrades to facilitate reentry services, treatment, and additional capacity. Brown plans on using the money — if obtained — to add transitional housing units to the proposed North County jail and to “replace antiquated housing” at the existing County Jail. Brown will present the application to county supervisors on 10/8.
