New Jail To Cost $53 Million, Down From Initial Figure

More progress today on plans to build a new Smith County Jail to relieve overcrowding.

The Commissioners Court met this afternoon.

They are now looking at a $53-million facility with enough bed space for the next 10 years and the ability to expand. That cost is down from the $85-100 million jail proposed last fall.

Commissioners will meet again next Tuesday.
