Kansas City Regional Jail Is a Terrific Idea
This is an excellent example of the type of regional cooperation that will save taxpayers money. The only thing I can add to this discussion is the perspective of history, and to remind people still undecided on this in the western part of the state that St. Louis County did this in the 1990s. The St. Louis county jail, which is used by all of the municipalities, has worked out great for everyone. I am sure it will work for KC, too, especially if they build it art deco–style right by city hall and the courthouse.
