CORINTH, Miss. (AP) -- The Alcorn County Board of Supervisors has agreed to go ahead with the cleanup of the old county jail in preparation for either renting the building or using it for board meetings.
The Daily Corinthian reports the county has $43,000 provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for repairs needed after flooding, such as replacing drywall and flooring.
The Mississippi Department of Corrections has expressed interest in office space. Some board members are interested in moving board meetings to the facility. The current board room in the Chancery Building is up a flight of stairs with no elevator access. The jail building would be compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.
