Cuyahoga County selects Garfield Heights as new jail site

Season 2023 Episode 37 | 26m 46s

Cuyahoga County Council voted this week to move ahead with the purchase of land in Garfield Heights. The land will be the site of a new county jail. The council approved the purchase of about 72-acres for $38.7 million. Left undecided for now is how to pay for construction of the facility and whether to extend the sales tax approved for the Medical Mart for 40 years as part of the financing.
