Curry County moves forward with jail expansion

News Briefs

The Curry County jail will be getting some long overdue renovations. 

Ground is being broken for a major expansion along with some security upgrades. 

The changes have been in the works for years after a number of issues, including inmate escapes. Taxpayers approved a tax hike for it in 2014. 

The expansion will add two dozen cells and other new areas, and will cost about $11.5 million.
