Jail Funding On Supervisors Agenda

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Supervisors will vote on Tuesday whether to accept $13-million in AB 900 funding for a new county jail.

It is in addition to the $20-million that has already been allocated to the county in SB 1022 money. It will go a long way toward funding the overall project, to be constructed off Old Wards Ferry Road, which is expected to cost over $42-million. (Update: approved by unanimous vote)

On Tuesday, the Supervisors will also vote whether to approve a lease agreement to allow ATCAA to use a facility on Victoria Way in Jamestown for its food bank operations. (Update: ATCAA lease approved by unanimous vote) The county also plans to respond to the recent Tuolumne County Grand Jury Report, discuss a plan to help fund the upcoming Greenley Road/Mono Way widening project, and hold a public hearing on the 2015/16 final budget.

The meeting will start at 9am in the Board of Supervisors Meeting Room.

The update on the budget is here.

Responses to the Grand Jury report were unanimously approved with changes and posted on the County website. Details about the Grand Jury report are here.
