Jerome County Lease-Purchase Jail Agreement (May 2010)
Although this gained more support than the November election, it still failed to reach the super majority needed, it was defeated
- YES 1,492 (64.8%)
- NO 808 (35.2%)
This was the second attempt by county officials to get voter approval for a lease agreement plan to build a new jail facility. This proposal was for a slightly smaller facility then the November proposal, payments over a 30 year period to pay for the jail would be around $985,000. County officials were hoping to be able to better inform voters and address questions better so the new plan has a better chance to pass.
