OAKLAND CITY, Ind. (WEHT) – There’s still no decision on the future of the Gibson County Jail.
The Gibson County Council was scheduled to vote on a proposed 2% local option income tax to help fund an expansion of the jail.
However, council members decided to table a vote until next month.
Members said they still have questions about the project and exactly how much it will cost.
Estimates put the price tag on the renovation project at $30 million.
The council is up against an October 31 deadline to approve the tax if it wants to collect it in 2020.
