Lucas County Jail Debate at Meeting Tonight

(Toledo, OH) The public can hear more about the proposed new Lucas County jail from backers and opponents tonight.

Lucas County Commisisoners and the sheriff have agreed to meet with a group of South Toledo neighbors opposed to the proposed location for a new Lucas County lock-up. 

Commissioners recently announced the purchase of 30 acres of beanfield along Angola Road, including what they call a "buffer zone" between nearby industry and the busy intersection of Airport Highway and Byrne Road. But opponents say it's still too close to neighborhoods and a Metropark for their comfort. 

That meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Reynolds Corners branch library, where the question-and-answer session could turn into a heated public debate.
