So let me get this right.
The state presents a budget that is all about sharing services to lower our tax burden.
Then the state says Jefferson County and the city of Watertown cant share jail facilities.
In our world, that makes perfect sense.Right along with lowering revenues to and increasing mandates on local governments and making us the villain if we increase taxes.
You just cant make this stuff up.
