WILLCOX — Mayor Mike Laws, on behalf of the city of Willcox, has sent an open letter to Cochise County Supervisors Tom Crosby, Anne English and Peggy Judd regarding the proposed one-half cent sales tax to fund the construction and operations of a new county jail facility.

Cochise County voters are being asked to decide on the formation of a district for a new county jail. With it, a .5 cent sales tax increase would pay for the estimated $90 million project, and would sunset in 2047. The election is slated for May.
