Knox County Authorities Working On County Jail Expansion

The Knox County Commissioners and Council are working toward an expansion of the current Knox County Jail on Old Decker Road.  The two groups are working together toward determining the scope of the project, and its final budget.

Knox County Commissioner Trent Hinkle expects actual movement toward the project to begin later this year…

 

Hinkle also expects the actual work on the Jail expansion to be a multi-year project…

 

The plan’s goal is to build another wing onto the current Jail facility, and to build a new work-release center on the Jail property.
