Commissioners discuss county jails issues in series of open meetings
By Simone Wichers-Voss
There is a lot to say about the current Bosque County jail, and not a whole lot of good. It is inefficient, outdated and deteriorating. Maintenance is difficult and expensive because of old equipment, like cell lock parts that are difficult to find. Additionally the county has to place female inmates in jails outside the county because the Bosque County jail has no facilities to house them. Nor has the facility adequate facilities to house more aggressive prisoners requiring a single cell.
