County eyes new jail facility

The Lamar County commission has scheduled a work session for Friday, July 6 to discuss the construction of a new detention center. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the administration building on Thomaston Street. Also on the agenda is discussion of the budget. The new jail, which has been recommended by multiple investigative grand juries over the years, will be the subject of a presentation by Goodwyn, Cawood and Mills. The most likely site for the new facility is in the field across the road from the current jail.
