A Fulton County Council Meeting Tuesday night lasted roughly an hour and a half with the bulk of the discussion revolving around the new jail. With a new jail comes the new dispatch center and concerns arise with cost and how the new dispatch center will be implemented. The Council agreed to approve a design study for the dispatch room at the new jail that will cost $25,000 of the $350,000 budget allocated for the dispatch room.
Fulton County Sheriff Chris Sailors says bids are due on Thursday for the new jail coming to Fulton County, at this time the hard costs will be realized.
The meeting ended with Fulton County Commissioner Steve Metzger taking the floor pitching his idea to the council for a new salt storage building for the county. In total the project should cost $110,000 and will allow the county to have a two year supply of salt on the over 5 acres of property.
