Here is the link to the Whatcom County Council agenda packet where you can view the information Joy mentioned above: . If you are not able to view the packet for some reason, or it is more convenient to view them here, I have posted the three proposed resolutions by the various council members along with the three sets of proposed jail planning principles. Each set bears a header of who is noted as proposing them.

First, here are copies of the three proposed jail planning resolutions.  Note that Council Member Donovan’s proposal (listed second) appears to be a modification of the original proposal (listed first) that is labeled as being proposed by only Council Members Buchanan, Mann, and Weimer.  Council Member Brenner’s proposal (listed third) seems to be be of a more original construction:

Proposed by Buchanan, Mann, Weimer

Now here are the three sets of jail planning principles.  Again in this case, Council Member Donovan’s set of principles seems to be a modification of those by Council Members Buchanan, Mann, and Weimer.  Council Member Brenner’s list of principles is brief and seems to be independent of the other council members’ proposals:
