There are numerous maintenance issues at the City Jail, which need to be addressed. Roof repairs are needed, locking mechanism must be replaced, and there are several other maintenance projects which cannot be funded with our general budget. For example, jails require a special plumbing system that the inmates can not remove from the wall and use as a weapon. Twenty years ago, the City Jail had a state of the art plumbing system. Today, it is falling apart. Plumbing throughout the majority of the jail needs to be replaced and upgraded.
