Letters: Reopen Beacon facility as county jail

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Shortly after closing a state prison facility in Beacon, Dutchess County needs a new jail. Why can’t the county and the state work together on this?

I have asked a few elected officials, whose reply was, “It is like mixing apples with oranges.” Well, my tax dollars should be the dough that blends the two together.

I ask all of you, why can’t the Dutchess County jail expansion be curtailed and reopen the facility in Beacon to solve the overcrowding issue?
