Plans for replacing the over-crowded Genesee County Jail is beginning to show signs of progress.
Genesee County Manager Gsell talked about those plans on today’s Main & Center program
Gsell is hopeful that the 9 acre parcel of land with direct access to Route 5 will be approved as the designated site for a new jail facility that could house between 124 and 184 inmates.
He says having an approved location would put the County in a good position to begin the next phase of planning.
