Santa Barbara County officials on 5/13 continued to press forward with efforts to build a new North County jail, agreeing to contracts with several consultants related to the construction and design of the 376-bed jail, scheduled to open in 2017. The contracts the Board of Supervisors agreed to this week were built into the $96.1 million total cost of the project, $80 million of which will be covered by a state grant.

So it's not enough to merely waste $90 million on a jail we absolutely do NOT have the funds to operate, we need to hire "consultants" to tell us how to waste the "free" state grant money.

Everbody line up at the trough, su su su, suuuheee! Here pigs, come and get it!
