ssioners will address the issue of jail privatization this Thursday, according to a Facebook post by Commissioner Paul D. Perry.  

As we've reported, Ellis County's jail management evaluation and feasibility committee has received bids from two-companies - Community Education Centers and LaSalle Southeast Corrections.  CEC's bid was rated 65 points out of 100 while LaSalle's received only 53 points out of 100.
