I attended the Dec. 16 County Council meeting in support of Min Park’s petition to stop funding construction of the Judicial/Police/Complex until concerns of location, size and cost were fully addressed. At this meeting, council members spoke of concerns with these very issues, yet even those who voiced the strongest concerns voted to fund the project as designed.
Earlier this fall, at the meeting which finalized the first phase of JPC funding, lengthy discussion was held about why this project as a whole did not qualify for the highest “A” priority under the new Prioritization Process presented to Council by Steve Lynne and Rick Bohn. Unfortunately, council had changed the agenda order for quick approval of the first phase of funding prior to the discussion.
There is a disconcerting pattern to council actions of late. Before final approval of the skateboard project by council, landscaping was already being removed from the site; immediately after the demolition of the Municipal Building, concrete was poured for a sidewalk; and before the council approved the first phase of funding for the Judicial/Police/Complex, the prisoner exercise yard of the current facility, required by law, was demolished.
