Local committee voices support for jail bond

A group of Smith County business professionals are supporting the current jail bond proposal. In 2005, the Master Plan Resource Committee formed to plan facilities for county government. They were not paid by county government, but say they had a desire in seeing the county make good decisions.

"We had determined back in 2005 that it's critical we keep the facilities together in downtown because it's cost efficient, it's effective to keep all the operations of county government together, and we have not endorsed any of the other jail planes, but this one we do because it's cost effective, it's not overbilled," said Martin Heines, the Chairman of the committee.

The Master Plan Resource Committee is made of all volunteers who have experience in land and facility utilization.
