Trustees Build Sidewalk from Jail to New Courtroom at Law Enforcement Center

In a cost saving step, Hopkins County Jail Trustees, assisted by a local contractor, are finishing the sidewalk that will connect the new court room to the back of the jail. The cost of the sidewalk was $2,500 instead of $25,000, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

This will provided easy access to the back of the new court room so inmate will not have to be transported to the court house on the square. Now the inmate will be able to walk down the new sidewalk to the courtroom annex. On Thursday, a local contract agreed to assist one of the Trustee crews showing them how to pour concrete and all the procedures in what it takes to complete this process. Sheriff Lewis Tatum said this is just another skill they may be able to use when they get out and hopefully enter the work force. This process was paid for by the inmates commissary fund.
