The special board meeting of the Tulsa County Board of Commissioners was scheduled Jan. 29. on whether to add proposals to ease overcrowding at the jail and the detention center.
Commissioner Ron Peters told KTUL that during the meeting the board will vote to either add or not add the proposals to a ballot for Tulsa residents to decide.

Bynum told KTUL earlier this month.
Officials held the final meeting Thursday evevning over at the Owasso Community Center to discuss the proposed needs.
