Sheriff Damon Devereaux and Jail Administrator Randy Lester showed
Commissioners Marven Goodman, Mike Pearson and Monty Piearcy the facility.

Following the inspection tour of the 11-year-old facility,
Piearcy stated the building looked to be in good condition.

“It was nice and clean. The sheriff has done a good job of
keeping it up,” Piearcy said.

“I agree. There were no serious deficiencies,” Goodman said
in response.

As of Monday morning, the jail held 160 prisoners, including
24 women.

Construction of the jail was completed in 2007 with a price
tag of $7.1M.

Goodman to retain chairman title

After a brief discussion, Piearcy made a motion to name Goodman as the chairman of the board. It was seconded by Pearson and a 3-0 vote followed.

This will mark the second year in a row for Goodman to hold the title.

Pearson was named co-chairman with a 3-0 vote.
