  • Update: Commissioners agree to move forward with new jail site

    The Jefferson County Commissioners voted Thursday evening to accept the jail committee's recommendation to begin the purchasing processes for part of a property located north of J A Berry Lane, west of the former Robus Leather building. Commissioners David Bramer and Robert Little voted to in favor of moving forward and are still planning to look into purchasing around 50 acres of the more than 80-acre parcel.
