Commissioners Set To Decide On Jail's Future

A privately built jail could be in the future for Smith County.

Commissioners are expected to decided Monday whether they will go forward with that process.  Last month the county put out a request for qualifications from companies interested in building such a facility.  They got four responses.

The County says it would cost $85 million to build a jail themselves.  Commissioners are looking to get a better idea on the cost of one built outside the County.
