Randall County Jail Expansion

Randall County is planning on 96 more beds in its jail expansion plans.

County officials say the funding for the project comes in two ways, either by certificates of obligation and the other half through the American Rescue Plan.

That comes to 10 million dollars apiece.

The expansion will help the Randall County Jail keep the sick away from those who are at risk of harming themselves and others.

County officials also say taxpayers will not see the impact on their bills, because the county just paid off another debt.

The project is expected to break ground in the spring and will take about 14 months of construction.
