Work on Taylor County's jail is officially behind schedule.
At last week's Fiscal Court meeting, Magistrate James Jones told the Court on behalf of the Law Enforcement and Detention Center Committee that the jail is now 58 percent complete.
However, he said, rain and other weather has caused a month-long delay in finishing construction.
Therefore, Jones said, the jail's opening date is expected to be pushed back from May to the end of June or the beginning of July.
On the financial side, Jones said, the jail is in good shape.
