The Pueblo County Jail Task Force (PCJTF) briefed the Colorado City Metropolitan Board of Directors on the results of a five months intensive study of detention needs in Pueblo County at a board meeting on Tuesday evening, October 10, 2017. PCJTF, represented by Commissioner Garrison Ortiz and Chief Deputy Jeffrey Teschner, told the board that a wide range of detention solutions were reviewed before the task force recommended the construction of a new $140 million facility behind the Dennis Maaes Judicial Building in Pueblo. The new facility would house 950 detainees, an 83.3% increase in hard bed detention space.

“The task force looked at county level financing as an alternative to going to the voters for a sales tax increase. We calculated that the county would need to designate $9-10 million dollars annually for debt service requiring elimination of some existing services and significant budget cuts to others,” Ortiz informed the board.
