Progress continues to be made on the new Hopkins County Jail despite a tremendous number of rain days since construction began. County Judge Robert Newsom expects the roof over the new facility to be completed by May 20th. He bases his statement on commitments made by the contractor.
Hampered by rain days, construction is 18-days behind schedule. Yet, Newsom expects the building to be completed some time in October. When the outside is completed, the county judge expects sub-contractors to work overtime to complete their tasks.
