Jail Recommendation

Attorney General, Russ Johnson, will be on hand at tonight's county commission workshop to officially present the jail committee's recommendation to commission.

The committee is formally recommending that the commission provide funding for an all new jail/justice center located in the Center 75 industrial park off Hwy. 72 in Loudon. Cost estimates for the proposal range from 31 to 35 million dollars and would require a large property tax increase to pay for the new facility.

The workshop will begin at 6:00 at the Loudon County Office Building, 100 River Road, Loudon.
