This is a great idea, as Long as it's not being used as a tool to entice a certain candidate to run for office. That would certainly sound immoral. I wonder what happens if the food account runs out of money? I'd bet any shortfall would still come out of the Sheriff's pocket, since that IS the law.
Are they taking about a "law", or a "resolution"? Big difference! When the food account runs dry, they'll just do away with the resolution, and the sheriff will be screwed.
I gather you have no idea of the amount of funds the receive via state and federal. In our county a law is In fact a resolution to any sheriff attempting to run for power and greed...aka corruption!
Oh My God, the food account will never run out of money, unless people quit getting incarcerated. Isn't that why they had to build on to the jail for the increased population?? Her pockets keep getting fatter and fatter.
"Will never run out", are you stupid, or just ignorant? Why do you think the county commission has refused to take it over? They know it will lose money, they don't want that responsibility. If it's an unlimited, infinite stream of money, as you claim, they wouldn't have any reason to NOT take it over. Heck, they'd love to have access to that, maybe they could find another Limestone County business to give it to.
Somebody needs to look at the other 22 accounts. Ana and Charlie were living it up all weekend in Decatur. Guess they needed a rest from Saraland. As long as there is money in the SO Ana will continue to steal. It takes a lot of money to please Ana. Just ask booger.
County Commission does not want it because of the head ache. You are the stupid one. Jails are growing faster in population than they can build or enlarge. You get so much per inmate, cities and federal pay lots more than the state. The food money account is growing fatter by the day.
The county commission won't take it because past sheriff's have made the threat of not allowing them to use inmate labor to cook the food for the inmate population. If the commission Is allowed to use inmate labor there will be no loss, but inmate labor approval is up to the sheriff's in each county.
This is the 1st time I've posted on this sooo I didnt say anything before,but if you have free labor LIke it is now there will be no shortage as the office takes in $45k at the least a month from the state on the food allowance and even more with Feds and other municipalities housing there. There will never be a shortage with Franklin taking 160k+ and Bartlett 225k+ for themselves.
Ooohhhh...but I thought you said it would NEVER run out of money. I guess your endless cash flow is dependant on free labor.Ok
This is a huge point that Ron Puckett needs to consider. He gets his raise for agreeing to run, but WHEN the food money runs out, ole Ray Long will be pointing his finger at the 1939 law, and Mr Puckett will be digging in his own pockets to feed prisoners.It ought to be a statewide law to force county commissions to be responsible for the food.
Actually not just Ron, every candidate needs to be aware of the blade that Long will sink straight into their back, at the first chance he gets.
