Jail Land Purchase Underway

Published on June 21, 2012 by Larry Crippen

In the next couple of weeks, the County hopes to complete their purchase of land for the new jail.

The future jail site will be on 12.6 acres of land on FM 2821. The land, in between the Walker County Adult Probation Office and the Wynne Mobile Home Park, will be purchased from the state for $157,500 dollars.

Walker County Commissioners voted in April to issue $20 million dollars in certificates of obligation to pay for the cost of jail construction, buying land, and to cover any unforeseen costs.
