Legislative Breakfast talks new jail

The biggest topic of the day from the Legislative Breakfast Series at Rochester Meat and Deli was the new Fulton County Jail.


Fulton County Commissioner Rick Ranstead says coming to a final decision on the price of the jail was a process in itself, but there is a final estimated price.



Ranstead says when push comes to shove it was time for a new jail, as the current jail is overflowing with inmates and some are needing to be outsourced to surrounding correctional facilities.



The finish date for the construction of the new jail is sometime in May 2021.
