Monroe County Goes For New Courthouse And Jail Tonight
The Monroe County Board faces two big challenges when they vote on a new $28 million jail and courthouse tonight. First, the money issue. Second, according to Judiciary Committee Chair, Judge David Rice, location.
Supervisors will be confronted with a report that outlines 65 of 102
where county courtrooms and related infrastructure fail to meet state
standards. It questioned whether the existing courthouse can function as a modern criminal justice facility. Rice said the board needs to take the report seriously.
