Yeah the Beloit school wants the old school building and gym but yet they will have to dump loads of cash into these buildings all the while they will be cutting programs and staff in the other two facilities they barely maintain...makes sense to me...duh.

I don't think the people of Beloit realize what it will cost them in tax dollars to maintain that facility. So far everyone that wants to use it (city, county, vo-tech, and USD 273) our tax dollars already support. It would be nice to get a business in there that would actually pay some tax dollars to help offset the maintenance and utility fees that amount to around $250,000 or more per year.

The school district is looking at getting rid of three locations they are in now in order to go to the BJCF. The county seems to think they can break even by housing out-of-county prisoners for other places. I haven't heard what the college is planning.
They are trying to get a business out there. I would like to see them make something of it.
