Jerome Commissioners Cut Back Jail Proposal

The fourth attempt at passing a bond in Jerome County to build a new jail will be aimed at a smaller facility this time. Jerome County Commissioners say they have pared down the proposed facility to replace the current aging county jail from 165 beds to 120.  This should offer a substantial savings to the county over previous attempts.  A rough estimate for a 120 bed facility is between 8 and 11 million dollars, down from the $13-million dollar price tag the county had previously sought.  Commissioners also have a plan to present Jerome County voters with a close estimate of the completed facility so voters can make an informed decision.
