Burleigh/Morton County Meet To Discuss Joint Jail

Posted:

Morton County Commissioners are one step closer to making a decision on a new combined jail with Burleigh County.

Tonight both Burleigh and Morton county commissioners meet to discuss the new 460 bed jail proposal.

The jail would be built in Burleigh county and would house both Morton and Burleigh county inmates.

Morton County Commissioner Bruce Strinden says tonight's meeting answered some questions he had about sales tax.

"We had some concerns about the payout of the facility, and what we agreed on is that we would start the half cent sales tax and once the facility was paid off that would be Morton County's percentage of the ownership and Burleigh County's percentage would be whatever the dollars of revenue generated by the sales tax dollars when we pay the bonds off," Morton County Commissioner Bruce Strinden said.

Burleigh County had told Morton County Commissioners they wanted an answer by July first if they were in or out on the combined jail.

Tonight a decision was made to allow the Morton County Commission to vote on the proposal at their July 9th meeting.
