I would like to express my opinion about a jail for Fayette County. I don’t believe most of the people of this county want a fiberglass jail or want it
located away from the courthouse. The existing jail is 3,000 square feet. Why
not build a new wing on the north end of the existing jail, running east and
west, the same size of the old jail, pave the area next to the parking lot,
move the sheriff’s property to the county shop where it will be under lock and key and have more
parking spaces for the courthouse?
Move the prisoners into the new part, pressure wash and paint the old jail. Now
we have doubled the size of our jail and saved money. Remember a large number
of houses in this county are older than the existing jail (50 years old -
I believe we have a good commission and they try to do what is good for this
county. This is just my opinion.
