Big surprise — jail consultants want more time

It's not surprising that Sedgwick County's jail consultants want more time to complete their reports, given how consistent Justice Concepts has been in missing deadlines. Still, the original contract ended last June, and several county commissioners have made it clear that they are tired of waiting. So it is audacious of the consultants to ask for more time. Then again, last November they asked for an 18-month contract extension and $228,000 — so audacity is nothing new.
