Plan b. Spend.money more carefully. Be more fruga.. could any money be recoupped as in turkia mullin scandal? There r not too many options left. Get grant from feds who r 16 trillion in debt. Pay cuts to reasonable salaries compared to other regions of same size? In lorain county or cuyahoga county ohio check what their pay rolls r compared to here.How much does county commissioner make? Just some ideas.

Yes this region has always had rocket scientists working for these local governments. Hey let's spend like the feds do! Little if any accountability?

I have this nagging suspicion that the jail proposal was bid a certain way so it would gain approval with the full knowledge that it would have these cost overruns that would have to be approved to get the job finished. They can't stop the project. What they could do is build a lesser facility for the lesser price. Taxpayers get screwed again.
These contracts should be let on the basis of no overruns and full completion. The builders should be bonded for the full amount so they can't go broke and leave us flat.
