Lubbock County Jail Design Plans Up for Bid

Lubbock County Commissioners take another step closer toward building a new jail. Sherriff David Gutierrez and members of the 'PONI' team met Tuesday. Poni stands for planning of a new institution.

At the meeting, county officials decided to reopen bids for the new jail. Next month, the county will hear reports from eight architecure firms. Then they will decide which design is more cost effective. "We have a model but maybe we should look outside the box once again to see if there is a more cost effceint model we can build," says Lubbock County Sheriff, David Gutierrez.   

The decision to reopen bids will be voted on by the county commissioners at their next meeting on Monday the 27th. Earlier this week, commissioners secured close to $83 million in bonds for the new facility. The bonds come with an interest rate of 4%.
