The past two issues of this paper have reported concerns about the cost, financing and even the location of a new county jail by one resident. Well since it’s the dead of winter and I have more time on hand than work, I figured I would add my thoughts on this matter.
First of all, the idea of building a new jail anywhere but near the present courthouse is a moot point in my opinion.
The added cost of transporting inmates, procuring land and developing it would make this a prohibitive measure.
