Excerpt from a County press release

The debt service on the new Adult Detention and Law Enforcement Center were paid in full on August 1st, and the Commissioners and Sheriff Phil Miller celebrated by ceremoniously burning the note in front of the Jail following the morning Commission meeting. The bonds were issued on February 15, 2011, and were sold by CitiGroup and SunTrust. The interest rate was 1.7823%, and debt service payments were made every six months. The final payment on August 1st was $19,874,500 ($19,405,000 principal and $469,500 interest).

The total construction budget was $115,763,214 of which $105,858,173 was from bonds; $9,613,168 was pay-as-you-go construction; and $291,873 was from interest earned from invested bonds.

The project was approved by the Public on November 3, 2009, when a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) received the majority of votes. The one-cent sales tax generated $133,851,570 in revenue over its six years of existence, and went out of effect on March 31st of this year. Douglas County's General Fund was reimbursed $7,306,282 from the sales tax for the original purchase of the 36-acre site, and all excess SPLOST funds also go into the General Fund.

Sheriff Phil Miller and staff would like to say thank you to these two sweet girls. Ericka and Kyndall Drummond were so thoughtful in setting up a lemonade stand, and brought the proceeds to the Sheriff's Office today. They stood outside for almost 11 hours in the heat, and declined to pack up shop when it started to rain. They told one of our investigators that if we have to work out in the rain, they can too. It's that kind of spirit that makes working with and for the citizens of this county so rewarding in so many ways. We can't say 'thank you' enough.
