Would a New Pueblo County Jail Alleviate Shuffling Inmates to Other Facilities?

In August, the Pueblo County Board of Commissioners and Sheriff Kirk Taylor were kicking around the idea of a November ballot measure to pay for a new jail. One proposal being considered called for a half-cent sales tax; another was using existing taxes from the sale of marijuana.

The discussion between Taylor and the commissioners isn’t a new one. Taylor proposed raising the sales tax nine-twentieths of a cent in 2017. That would have earned around $10.6 million each year for 30 years in an effort to build a new jail.

Voters turned that idea down, despite Taylor’s grim picture of conditions inside the facility: leaky pipes, safety concerns for guards, and, most of all, severe overcrowding.
