They were leaning toward building a 144 jail bed addition to the existing jail for ten million dollars.

 

But now they are looking at renovating the juvenile detention facility instead because it is cheaper.

 

Commissioner Alan Unger knows Sheriff Blanton is not happy about the decision, but says given the current economic climate -- the cheaper price tag convinced them to change direction.

 

The commissioners still have to find a location to house juvenile inmates, but Unger says even if they have to build a new juvenile facility, that cost is estimated to be around five million dollars.  It's still cheaper than building the jail addition.

 

The commissioner will get a cost analysis on different juvenile facility options in a couple weeks.
