We have recently heard a proposal to privatize the Mesa jail operations. Please read (really read) and watch the following links and let the council know your thoughts. Please keep in mind:
1. People Concerns
2. City Budget Issues
3. Jail vs. Prison (transport, booking and length of stay)
4. Unforeseen Consequences of being the first Az Municipality to do this.
Please send your letters to Council@MesaAz.gov
It goes to the entire council so address it as "Mayor and Council"
