Progress Being Made On New Vigo County Jail

VIGO COUNTY, Ind – Progress continues on the new Vigo County Jail project.

Bids could be opened at the county Commissioners meeting on October 3td.

The Vigo County Council will move forward on the purchase of land at their meeting later this month.

County Commissioners are likely to hold a public hearing on the jail design drawings and plans as well as cost estimates on September 3rd.
