As Jail Negotiations Continue, the Sheriff Says the City of Tulsa is Piling up a Big Bill
Negotiations continue on a jail contract between the County and the city of Tulsa, but neither side is budging much from earlier positions. With the current contract now expired, Sheriff Stanley Glanz says bills are being compiled for Tulsa’s municipal inmates, and they’re adding up fast.
The city is paying less than what the county claims is a daily cost, and is refusing to pay a new booking fee approved by Tulsa County leaders. For now, municipal inmates are still being accepted, but Glanz says if no agreement is reached soon, he will be consulting his attorneys on the possible next step.
