Commissioners Take Step Towards Repairing Roof On Jail

Smith County commissioners come up with a plan for a new roof at an East Texas jail. Monday, Smith County commissioners agreed to hire an engineering firm to inspect the roof at the low and medium risk facility.  Commissioners want the flat roof replaced with a sloping roof that will shed water. The firm is expected to submit their recommendations for the new roof within 10 days of their inspection.
