Did the "stall" help or harm the taxpayer? Of the negotating teams who came out ahead?
Fair price would be one third of operating costs. (divided between Sheriffs dept, city police and state patrol) This figure is a far cry from what the county originally wanted. Is the county caving in now to buy time to negotiate a better deal down the road and not risk losing the city as partner? Or were costs vastly overstated ? On first glance it looks like the city scored a major win on this . The next time I buy a house the city is going to negotiate the price for me. I need more information on this one.
Leases are for suckers. In 10 years the will have dumped $600,000 to the county and have zero to show for it. I would hope they would buy their portion or just build their own facility.
I got a bridge they can lease too! Call 1-800-TRUTH4U
The total operating cost of the building is $2.21 million. Of that, the jail eats about $1.73 million. (I believe the county, not the city, has the obligation to run the jail... so that should probably not be included in a division of costs). So that leaves about $480,000 for operation of the rest of the building. The city is now paying about 12.5% of that amount for its portion of the lease. In other words, it looks like the county is losing a lot of money to keep the city in the same building. Makes no difference to me... I live in the city.
