Knox County One Step Closer To Getting New Jail

Knox County may be one step closer to getting a new jail.

The county's fiscal court approved an order which allows the county judge executive to solicit proposals to construct a new facility. The county has been paying to transport its inmates to other facilities since the Knox County Jail closed in 2003.

The new jail would hold about three hundred inmates and employ about sixty people.
