Thread: City Jail

  1. #101

    Default Re: City Jail

    At yesterday's City Council meeting, Marva Ellard spoke briefly about a proposed new timeline for renovating the jail.

    Councilman Stonecipher said he would like to see more detail in her plan and the matter was deferred to the next meeting.

    For the demolition motion:
    McAtee
    Stone
    Stonecipher
    Greenwell

    Against:
    Cooper
    Hamon
    Nice
    Greiner
    Holt

    Interesting vote breakdown.

    Sometimes I get the impression Greenwell votes the way he does to spite the new council members. He gets really worked up about some strange things.

    Nice to see Greiner step to the other/right side - he's a millennial too you know, interesting that Stonecipher voted for demo since he's been on the youth side so often.. ..... Not surprised at all on the others in favor or against.

    Good that Marva is getting a shot at it. I'm all in favor of demo of the old "new" police hq and the old courthouse - i hope they get turned into a nice garage with street fronts that could be city services; but the old old police headquarters/jail needs to be preserved in some way.

    Couldn't they purpose some of the mental health facilities in there?

    You mean Greiner, not Greenwell.

    The 4 that voted for the demolition are pretty predictable. I'd still like to see evidence that Stonecipher is more in the center as some here have claimed.

    Our new (old) MAPS 4 sanitarium? It architecturally does look the part.
