    Wow what a deal!!!!!! DLR Group is selected to; acquire property, design, and build the new county jail. Whatever happened to the old fashioned competitive bidding process? No wonder county taxes and fees continue to rise. I guess that if you bid it out, the opportunities to get the cream off the top are diminished. The BCC must have learned this process at the WD school of county fiscal management.
