PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Jackson County supervisors plan to finalize a contract with the new jail architect.
When they meet Monday, The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/TlTeOH ) county leaders plan to release details about what the jail will contain, what it will cost to build and when taxpayers will begin seeing construction.
Board of Supervisors President John McKay said last week that a representative of the Goldberg Group-Architects, PC met with the county and Sheriff Mike Byrd to see what the county needs in a jail.
The county discarded architectural firm Pryor & Morrow's jail design this summer after spending $1.2 million.
McKay said he expects the construction cost to be about $28 million and the design to be modular in part.
