Budget set for construction of Fulton County jail

Official contract for the new Fulton County Jail agreed upon with construction set to being soon.

Fulton County Commissioner Bryan Lewis says a max contract was agreed to for just over 23 million dollars with the possibility of additional charges coming due to alternate options.



Lewis says the good news is when talking to the financial advisors for the county it appears that Fulton County is ahead schedule compared to other counties that have built jails.



Expect ground to be broken for the new jail at some time in March with construction to conclude in May of 2021.
