307.084 Purchase or appropriation of real property for state or federal correctional facility.

When the board of county commissioners determines that it serves the interests of the county, the board may procure real estate within the county by purchase or by appropriation under sections 163.01 to 163.22 of the Revised Code and donate it to the state, the department of rehabilitation and correction, or the United States bureau of prisons for the construction of a state correctional institution or a federal correctional facility or complex.

The board shall attempt to obtain the best possible terms and conditions in relation to the donation, such as priority over courts or law enforcement agencies of other jurisdictions in placement in the institution, facility, or complex of nonstate or nonfederal prisoners, or an option for the county to repurchase the property on reasonable terms should it no longer be used as a state correctional institution or federal correctional facility or complex.
