WICHITA FALLS, TX
WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Wichita County Commissioners will spend $45,000 on roof repairs for the Wichita County Jail Annex.
Since the roof's seams were done by another company the repairs are not covered under warranty, but the reconstruction will get the building back in compliance.
The other reconstruction is going to be covered under warranty; however no price tag has been established for those repairs.
County officials are making these decisions with one thing in mind, the possibility of a new facility.
“If we decide to build a jail downtown then I don't think we will put that money in to the jail annex,” said Judge Gossom.
Commissioners hope to establish whether or not this will happen within three to four years.
The letter of engagement from the company that is doing the repairs should come sometime this week, and Judge Gossom said he thinks the work could be completed within six weeks.
