Starke County Council Approves Ordinances for Jail Funding

Construction of a new Starke County Jail cleared another procedural hurdle with the adoption by the county council of a resolution and ordinance to commit to funding the project. Both are required before the county can sell bonds to finance the construction. They simply state that the additional economic development income tax the county has been collecting for the past year will be used to repay the bonds. The time frame for the project calls for the sale of bonds in November.
