The article reports that Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper said last week that he believes he can convince voters to approve a $350 million general obligation bond issue that would finance a new jail and justice center. Hickenlooper said that the current proposal would hold tax rates at their current levels through the lifetime of the bonds. The proposal includes the consolidation of 41 courtrooms that are currently scattered in several facilities, a jail with 1,500 beds, and renovations of the old county jail, which would house 286 inmates.
