Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins said there was a big celebration in madras when they heard the results of the Jail Bond Levy passing. An extensive of an operating levy for the jail means they won't be forced to start letting out inmates when the current levy expires next month. Adkins want to thank the citizens who supported the levy. “I hope I can live up to their expectations. I’ve really cut back on different expenditures. I'm running a really lean machine. I've cut back on food costs, electricity, we’re trying to do that, watering, I’ve laid off seven and a half people. We’re cutting everywhere so we can meet the expectations of the voters.” The levy passed by about a 2 to 1 margin.
