Council member shuns report on jail expansion

To the taxpayers of Gibson County:

I respectfully disagree with the findings of a federal court concerning jail facilities in Gibson County.

At this time, I will not be supporting any request for funding regarding jail expansion.

As soon as the findings of the 2020 census have been released, the information studied, and we have the opportunity to review those findings, I will be joining others in studying the needs of jail facilities that will best serve Gibson County for years to come.

Councilman At Large Bill McConnell, Princeton
