Grants Pass holds community forum on jail beds
The City of Grants Pass is holding a community forum Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers located at 101 N.W. A Street to discuss how effective the city purchased jail beds are at deterring crime.
The forum is administered by City Manager Aaron Cubic who is seeking the publicís opinion on whether the city should continue to pay for the beds, and if so, if a five-year levy would be acceptable by citizens to pay for the continued use of the rented beds.
Cubic stated the city does not have the extra funds to continue paying for the 30 beds and the levy would last until the countyís budget became more solvent.
