FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. -- Officials in Fannin County hope to begin construction of their new jail as early as June 20, with the completion date of 432-bed facility scheduled around August 2009.
Commissioners met earlier this week to discuss the specifics of the privately run jail that will cost around $22.5 million to construct and would employ close to 140 people.
The county will have 150 beds in the jail and would take over control after the first 25 years.
