Mesa County Jail moving forward with expansion plans

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Mesa County is moving forward with its jail expansion plans.

Last week, county commissioners approved a contract with an architect to start a conceptual design phase.

Once the initial design is approved, they can go more in-depth and figure out what exactly the jail look like, and how much it will cost, which will take another 90 days.

"We're seeking out the experts," said Megan Terlecky, a spokesperson for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office. "The people that we're working with are experts in building jails. One of the architects a part of this project helped build this jail 26 years ago in the first place."
