In today’s story about the $4.1 million spent in developing a new facility at the county jail that will likely never be built, I mentioned that San Joaquin County’s agreed to put up cash and “in-kind” services as part of the $115.5 million project. It was part of an agreement with the state to receive $80 million to build the project to expand the jail.
That included some $7.6 million worth of “in-kind” services, including planning for the transition into the new facility.
I got some more information today about the staff who had been working on the project in the Sheriff’s Office, which runs the jail. The office dedicated one lieutenant, one sergeant and four correctional officers to the plan, according to Les Garcia, office spokesman. Budget cuts eliminated the sergeant from the allocation in 2010, he said in an email.
In funding and and other contributions, the county had agreed to contribute $35.6 million to the project. That includes the value of the land, which the county put at about $3 million.
