Jail ≠ Justice: Volunteers will had out flyers and share with farmer's market attendees about the American Rescue monies and all the ways they can be spent. Today, Washington County plans to spend $20mm of the current $23mm given this year on an expansion of the jail. These monies can be used for many things: job training, rent/mortgage relief, small business loans/grants, infrastructure improvements, broadband. Each Saturday, handouts and the latest news of the rescue monies will be shared with community members along with an in-persn and on-line poll of where county residents would like to see the money spent.
Any time before each end date or when space runs out.
