  3. Lloyd Jackson:

    County officials have yet to make a decision as to what to do with the facility. But while they dither, the monthly meter is running. According to figures compiled by the Detroit Free Press some of the monthly costs include : Despite the hefty costs of The Wayne County Jail, and the county teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, Wayne County Executive Warren Evans does not appear to be any closer to making a decision on the building site. Due to the county's financial state, anything done on the... jail will just add to the deficit, once the deficit has been solved, the county can move forward with options on whether to finish the Gratiot site or renovate the three existing jails. As the county makes progress on its recovery plan, it will better be able to solve the jail issue. The Wayne County Jail was originally proposed as a $ 300 million, 2,000-bed jail that would combine the other county correctional facilities. Ground was broken on the work site in September 2011, but was stalled nearly two years later, in June 2013, when a 60-day suspension was imposed after projected cost overruns totaled nearly $ 100 million. Construction never resumed, and later that summer, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office launched an investigation into the project. The investigation led to the arrest of former Wayne County Chief Financial Officer Carla Sledge, attorney Steven Collins and construction manager Anthony Parlovecchio. Five parties have expressed interest in buying the construction site, including Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert, who has been active in Detroit’s ongoing attempt at urban renewal. But so far, the county has not accepted any offers — which is proving costly to taxpayers.
