A Failure of Imagination

To the Eagle:

I am embarrassed that my city government has chosen to become a deadbeat debtor. I see no reasonable rationale for the city's refusal to pay for the cost of housing its prisoners, and Mr. Rebenstorf does not provide any in the recent Eagle article.

If the city does not want to bear the cost of housing its prisoners, perhaps it can come up with more creative solutions for dealing with its misdemeanor offenders than locking them up.
