Court adds half million to jail fund

-A A +A

$150,000 added to already budgeted transfer.

By Calen McKinney

Magistrates took steps Tuesday night to transfer an additional $150,000 of this year's budget to replenish the nearly depleted jail fund.

Some magistrates, however, say this may not be enough to pay for upcoming jail costs, and other steps may become necessary.

Earlier in Tuesday's meeting, magistrates had also approved the transfer of nearly $325,000 from the general fund to the jail fund.

On Wednesday, Taylor County Treasurer Melissa Williams said that money is a third of the amount already budgeted to be placed into the jail fund.
