I feel that I must comment after reading about the decision by the Regional Justice Facilities Commission to delay hiring a financial consultant to determine the amount of money to be generated by Measure J ("Measure J Money Study Is Delayed," March 14). Earlier, the Board of Supervisors announced plans to spend money that they do not have to determine the value of land that is not for sale. However, the commission recommends not spending money to determine how much Measure J will generate until it is passed since they do not have the money for such a study.

The city of Brea wants to build a Youth Services Bureau to work with juvenile offenders, and the police chief wants to locate the bureau within a new community center still in the planning stages. The city of Santa Ana wants a new 240-cell jail to help ease overcrowding at the County Jail, where the city's police now book an average of 65 people daily.

County supervisors may hire an appraiser Tuesday to determine the value of land in Gypsum Canyon where a controversial regional jail has been proposed. If approved, the $85,000 appraisal contract would put the Board of Supervisors one step closer to purchasing the land from its owner, the Irvine Co. The contract would go to Cedric A. White Jr., an independent real estate appraiser, to determine the value of two parcels in Gypsum Canyon, just east of Anaheim Hills.

The Regional Justice Facilities Commission decided Wednesday to delay hiring a financial consultant to determine how much money would be generated by Measure J, the half-cent sales tax referendum that would fund criminal justice facilities, until after the May 14 election. The county commission, which put Measure J on the ballot, also decided to ask the county for $50,000 to fund its operations until it can collect revenue from the half-cent sales tax increase, if it is approved by voters.

A commission formed only hours before a ballot deadline Friday authorized a measure in which Orange County residents will decide whether to fund a new jail with a half-cent sales tax hike. The five-member Orange County Regional Justice Facilities Commission unanimously approved the May 14 referendum less than four hours after 28 of the county's 29 mayors selected two panel members.

In a dramatic victory for Sheriff Brad Gates, the Orange County Regional Justice Facilities Commission today unanimously authorized a May 14 sales tax referendum, giving voters a chance to decide a jail construction question that has befuddled officials for nearly 13 years. The commission's 5-0 vote came shortly after 28 of Orange County's 29 mayors met to select two of the panel members. Supervisors Harriett M. Weider and Roger R.

Six more cities have submitted requests for money that would be generated by Measure J's half-cent sales tax increase if the initiative is passed later this month by county voters. Orange County will decide Measure J, which is intended to pay for new jail construction, on May 14. But the new requests bring to 10 the number of cities that have already outlined projects they would like to pay for with the potential tax money.

Several city council members said Monday that they are vying for spots on a newly activated commission that will decide whether to schedule a May 14 referendum on raising the county sales tax to pay for jails. Irvine Mayor Sally Anne Sheridan, Brea Mayor Pro Tem Ron Isles and Fullerton Councilman Don Bankhead all said Monday that they are interested in serving on the commission, which will hold its first meeting Friday. "I've put my hat in the ring," Isles said.

When a newly activated law enforcement group gathers for the first time today, it will leap immediately into the breach: By the end of the meeting, the Orange County Regional Justice Facilities Commission will have decided whether county voters should go to the polls in May to consider a half-cent sales tax for jail construction.
