Plans For Privately Run Jail Move Forward

Smith County is step closer to a privately built jail as Commissioners met this morning. Last month the County put out a request for qualifications from companies interested in building such a facility.

They got four responses and today they decided to go forward with the interview process. Three of them are from Texas and one is out of state. It would cost the county 85 million dollars to build a jail themselves.
