Sheriff Seeks to Capture Use Tax Funds
A change is made to try and capture more money for the Tulsa County jail. County leaders adopt a resolution assigning jail expansion use taxes to a contribution fund for jail operations. Sheriff Stanley Glanz says previously the use tax dollars have gone for fairgrounds improvements. He says they should be going to jail operations instead.
Glanz says it could mean several thousand dollars a year more for a jail budget that is financially strapped, and could use every dollar.
