HAMILTON - Hamilton City Councilman Gene Sanderson urged fellow Hamilton City Council members to take care in how much the Marion County Commission is charged for the 5.1-acre Bedford Industrial Park property, which the commission may use to build the new Marion County Jail.
This topic was raised during discussions concerning an appraisal for the property during a regular meeting on Monday, Feb. 20, at Hamilton City Hall.
“I think we need to be careful of what we’re going to charge the county for it if we’re going to keep using the county jail to put our prisoners in,” said Sanderson.
“It’s going to be a problem if we ask them for an outrageous price and we are going to end up using it. I’ve got a pretty good idea that we’ve (Hamilton) got the most prisoners there out of everybody (in Marion County).”
